This  Volume  is  the  Supplement  of  Volume  I. ;  or,  rather,  one  is  the 
Complement  of  the  other.  The  two  Volumes  contain  all  the  Irish 
Genealogies  and  any  other  interesting  matter  bearing  on  ancient  Irish 
history  which  we  have  met  with  in  our  life-long  research. 

In  Vol.  I.  are  given  the  "  Origin  and  Stem  of  the  Irish  Nation," 
and,  so  far  as  we  could  collect  them,  the  genealogies  of  the  respective  Races 
of  Heber,  Ithe,  Ir,  and  Heremon,  which  branched  from  that  ancient  Stem  : 
together  with  Chapters  bearing  on  the  Creation ;  on  the  Irish  Lineal 
Descent  of  the  present  Royal  Family  of  England  ;  on  the  Pedigrees  of  St- 
Patrick,  Apostle  of  Ireland,  and  of  St.  Brigid,  the  Patron  Saint  of  Ireland ;, 
the  Roll  of  the  Irish  Monarchs  since  the  Milesian  Conquest  of  Ireland,, 
down  to  the  English  Invasion  in  the  twelfth  century ;  the  English 
Invasion  of  Ireland ;  the  Territories  possessed  by  the  ancient  Irish 
families  at  that  period ;  and  the  Cromwellian  Devastation  of  our  unhappy 
country  in  the  seventeenth  century  ;  etc. 

For  the  matter  contained  in  this  Volume  see  the  "  Contents,"  p.  xxi, 

In  collecting  the  materials  for  this  Edition  we  found  iuat  from  time  to 
time  many  families  of  Belgian,  Spanish,  and  French  origin  settled  in 
Ireland :  among  them  the  Huguenots,  who  were  Protestant  Refugees  from 
France,  before  and  during  the  reign  of  Louis  XIV. ;  and  the  Palatines,, 
who  as  "Protestant  Lutherans"  were,  a.d.  1709,  driven  from  their  homes 
in  the  Palatinate,  by  the  French,  under  that  Monarch.  We  have  inserted 
in  this  Volume  the  family  names  of  those  Refugees,  to  assist  their 
respective  representatives  in  Ireland  in  tracing  their  family  pedigrees. 

From  Hill's  elaborate  Work  on  the  "  Ulster  Plantation"  we  have 
collected  the  names  of  all  the  Undertakers  who  (see  pp.  501-623,  infra,) 
received  grants  of  land  in  the  five  Ulster  counties  then  escheated  to  make 
room  for  the  Plantation  of  Ulster,  temp.  King  James  I.  But  we  have  not 
met  with  the  names  of  the  dependents  or  retainers  who  accompanied  those 
several  Undertakers  to  Ulster;  because  their  names  are  not  mentioned  in 
the  Records  of  that  Plantation.  But  many  of  the  descendants  of  those- 
retainers  are  probably  still  in  Ireland. 


In  the  reign  of  James  I.  an  attempt  was  made  by  clumsy  translations 
to  get  rid  of  Gaelic  sirnames.  For  example  :  As  gabhan  is  the  Irish  for 
"  a  black-smith,"  then  Mac-an-Gabhain  (MacGowan  or  the  Smith's  son) 
became  ''Smith,"  "Smyth,"  "Smythe,"  and  "Smeethe;"  MacEoghain 
became  "  MacOwen,"  "  MacKeown,"  "  MacKeon,"'  "  McEwen,"  "  McCune," 
"Ewing,"  "Owenson,"  "Johnson,"  etc. ;  Murtagh  O'Neill  was  transformed 
into  "  Mortimer  Nelson ;"  MacAodha  was  anglicised  "  MacKay,"  "  Mackay," 
"Mackey,"  "McKee,"  "  Magee,"  "  Hodson,"  "Hudson,"  "Odson,"  etc.; 
' 0' Ceallaigh  was  twisted  into  "  Kalloch,"  and  "Kellogg."  From  Mac-an- 
Saggart  came  "  MacTaggart,"  "  Taggart,"  "  Priestraan,"  "  Priestly,"  etc. 

After  the  great  body  of  the  Irish  people  had  been  made  completely 
illiterate,  being  unable  to  read  or  write  either  Gaelic  or  English,  their 
names  were  curiously  mutilated  by  the  newly  arrived  proprietors  to  whom 
the  confiscated  estates  of  the  Irish  Landed  Gentry  had  been  conveyed,  or 
by  the  agents  of  those  proprietors,  who  had  no  other  guide  to  write  them 
in  English  than  the  owner's  pronunciation  of  his  name,  which  was  entered 
accordingly  on  the  new  landlord's  rent-roll ;  and  the  same  old  Irish 
sirname  was  therefore  differently  spelled  in  different  localities:  thus 
accounting  for  the  several  anglicised  forms  of  many  of  the  old  Irish 
sirnames.  Hence,  it  was  not  strange  that  the  fine  old  Irish  name  of 
Toirdhealhhach  Mac  Giolla  Ifochoda,  rolling  smoothly  from  its  owner's  tongue, 
should  have  been  recorded  on  the  new  landlord's  rent-roll  as  "  Turlogh 
MacGillicuddy,"  or  even  as  "  Terence  Mac  EUigott."*  The  broad  Gaelic 
guttural  sound  has  thus  almost  disappeared  from  Gaelic  sirnames  as 
pronounced  to-day.  The  true  Irish  form  of  "  O'Connor"  is,  for  instance, 
QConchobJiair,  meaning  "  the  descendant  of  the  war-hound  of  help"  or 
"the  helping  warrior;"  while  O'GallcIidbhair  is  the  correct  Irish  of 
"  O'Gallagher."  In  Scotland,  the  name  Callaghan  is  rendered  "  Colquhoun" 
and  "  Colhoun ;"  while  Farrar  has  become  "  Farquhar." 

Again,  for  Gaelic  names  have  been  substituted  names  of  Hebrew,  or 
classical  origin.  These  changes  were  due  to  ecclesiastical  or  classical 
pedantry  in  the  days  when  the  Gaelic  language  was  becoming  unfashion- 
able. Thus,  Alastair  (meaning  "  swan-bearer")  has  become  "  Alexander  3" 
Aine  has  been  transformed  into  "  Hannah,"  "Anna,"  and  even  "  Anastatia;" 
Conn  has  become  "  Constantino,"  and  "  Cornelius ;"  Diarmaid  (or  Dermot) 
has  been  translated  into  "Jeremiah,"  and  "Jeremy/^  and  Donoch  is 
transformed  into  "Donat,"  "Dionysius,"  and    "Denis."    Lorcan  gives 

*  MacEUigott:    See  pp.   141  and  146  of  Vol.  I.,  for  the  '« MacElligotfi^aiid 
<•  MacGillicuddy"  pedigrees,  respectively. 


place  to  the  Latin  "  Laurence ;"  and  SigUle  or  Sheela  (meaning  "  fairy-like") 
appears  in  the  forms  of  ''  Celia,"  "  Julia,"  "  Judy,"  and  "  Sibby."  Tadg, 
another  ancient  Irish  name,  has  become  "  Thaddeus,"  and  "Teddy  ;"  whilo 
Una  has  become  "  Winney,"  and  even  the  Saxon  "  Winifred." 

In  Appendix  No.  IL  of  this  Vol.  we  give  the  pedigress  of  tha  pre- 
Milesian  Irish  people;  and  an  additional  interesting  paper  on  the  Hound 
Towers  of  Ireland.  In  this  Vol.  also  is  given  a  General  Index,  of  its 
contents,  as  well  as  a  General  Index  of  Vol.  L  ;  in  both  of  which  Indexes 
are  brought  to  view  the  more  important  historic  names  and  events 
mentioned  in  this  Edition. 

We  have  (see  p.  v.,  ante,)  Dedicated  this  Volume  to  the  Benevolent 
American  Citizen,  Mr.  George  William  Ghilds,  of  Philadelphia,  the  eminent 
Publisher,  and  worthy  Proprietor  of  the  Public  Ledger  ::377;;:;a-.or,  cf  that 
City :  as  a  poor  Tribute  of  our  great  respect  for  him  as  one  of  Irel-ind's 
Best  Friends,  and  one  who  has  ever  been  pre-eminently  ready  with  hh 
Purse,  and  in  the  columns  of  his  influential  Journal,  to  befriend  the  L  "sh 
race ;  and  of  our  lasting  Gratitude  fcr  his  spontaneous  solicitude  respecting 
a  suitable  provision  for  ourself  in  our  old  age,  in  testimony  of  his  high  and 
disinterested  appreciation  of  our  humble  labours  in  the  field  of  Irish 
Archaeology,  of  which  our  Irish  Pedigrees  and  Irish  Landed  Gentry 
WHEN  Cromwell  came  to  Ireland  are  the  modest  outcome.  May  God 
bless  him ! 

But  this  is  only  one  of  the  many  instances  in  which,  in  his  own  quiet 
way,  "  without  letting  his  left  hand  know  what  his  right  hand  doeth," 
Mr.  Childs  dispenses  the  great  wealth  which  he  has  so  worthily  amassed. 
Having,  himself,  steadily  ascended  from  the  lowest  to  the  topmost  round 
of  the  social  ladder  and  attained  that  exalted  position,  it  would  seem  that 
the  purpose  nearest  io  his  heart  is,  by  example,  by  counsel,  by  generous 
and  well-timed  help,  to  place  others  as  near  as  may  be  beside  him.  To 
do  good,  because  it  is  good  ;  to  be  humane,  compassionate,  and  charitable 
now  while  opportunity  is  within  his  reach,  is  the  pole-star  of  his  being. 
And  whatever  advantages  health,  wealth,  talents,  accoraplishmentSj  and 
social  influence  afibrd  him  are  consecrated  with  rare  singleness  of  eye  to 
the  welfare  of  his  fellow-men  regardless  of  their  creed,  their  pohtics,  or 
their  nationality.     Of  him  Mr.  S,  C.  Hall  well  says  : 

"  The  name  of  George  W.  Childs  is  not  unknown  in  England.  It  is  well  known 
and  honoured  in  the  United  States  of  America.  He  is  one  of  the  most  illustrious  of 
the  living  citizens  of  that  great  country  and  people  ;  one  of  the  worthiest  of  its  public 
benefactors  ;  foremost  in  every  work  that  has  for  its  object  the  good  of  humanity  in  a 
hundred  varied  ways  ;  and  an  example  to  the  thousands  all  over  the  world  by  whom 
the  Newspaper  Press  is  conducted  as  an  organ  of  universal  instruction  and  of  virtuous 
education  as  well  as  solid  information." 

YOL.  II.  I 


When,  several  years  ago,  Mr.  Hall  desired  to  place  a  simple  monu- 
ment ovfer  the  unmarked  grave  of  Leigh  Hunt,  in  Kensal  Green,  Mr.  Childs 
proposed  to  pay  the  whole  cost  o£  its  erection  ;  but,  while  the  generosity 
of  the  offer  was  thankfully  acknowledged,  a  liberal  subscription  only  was 
accepted  from  him  for  that  purpose.  Mr.  Childs  was  also  the  largest 
subscriber  to  the  fund  for  placing  in  the  church  at  Bronham,  England,  a 
window  in  memory  of  the  immortal  Irish  bard,  Thomas  Moore.  And  the 
stained-glass  window  erected  by  ]\Ir.  Childs  in  Westminster  Abbey,  in 
commemoration  of  the  eminent  English  poets,  George  Herbert  and  William 
Cowper,  is  another  instance  of  his  princely  benevolence. 

Appreciative  notices  of  Mr.  Childs  have  appeared  in  Lippincott's 
Biographical  Didionanj,  in  Johnson's  Encyclopedia,  in  the  Biographie  des 
Confemporains,  in  Men  of  the  Times,  in  various  brochures  in  different  lan- 
guages, and  in  Newspapers  without  number. 

In  the  Printer's  Circular  of  June  1879,  we  read  : 

"  Many  men  have  made  magnificent  bequests,  but  Mr.  Childs  is  a  Princely  Giver. 
His  life  has  been  a  stream  of  benefactions,  flowing  hither,  thither,  everywhere.  He 
does  good  now,  while  it  is  day,  for  he  knows  that  the  night  cometh  when  no  man  can 
work.  His  benevolence  flows  in  the  channel  of  his  own  selection.  He  trusts  nothing 
to  post  mortem  contingencies.  He  knows  that  the  good  he  does  becomes  his  own  by 
the  loftiest  of  titles,  for  it  will  act  and  re-act  onward  for  ever." 

To  quote  the  language  of  the  late  (American)  Chief  Justice  Ellis 

"  Mr.  Childs  has  planted  himself  in  the_ human  heart,  and  there  he  will  have  his 
habitation  while  man  shall  dwell  upon  earth'.  He  has  built  his  monument  upon  the 
broad  basis  of  universal  benevolence  ;  its  superstructure  is  composed  of  good  and  noble 
deeds;  its  spire  is  the  love  of  God,  and  points  to  Heaven." 

Voltaire,  we  are  told,  declined  to  edit  an  edition  of  the  Avorks  of 
Bacine,  for  the  reason  that  his  annotations  of  those  works  would  consist 
simply  of  elaborate  commendation.  Our  readers  may,  perhaps,  think  that 
for  a  similar  reason  the  portraiture  which  we  have  here  drawn  of  the  Good 
Mr.  Childs  should  have  been  withheld.  To  those,  however,  who  do  not 
know  him  the  language  we  employ  may  be  regarded  as  undiscerning 
euloc^y ;  but  to  those  who  know  him  it  is  but  faint  praise.

Volume  we  are  indebted  to  the  courtesy  of  Mr.  C.  J.  Hubbard,  United

As  our  Irish  Pedigrees  and  Irish  Landed  Gentry  when  Crom- 
well CAME  TO  Ireland  subserve  no  sect  or  party,  we  hopefully  confide 
them  to  the  Irish  and  Anglo-Irish  race  of  every  class  and  creed  all  over 
the  world.

BARRY.  (No.  3). 

Of  Sandville,  County  Limerick- 

In  p.  278,  Vol.  I.,  first  column,  beginning  with  line  13  from  top,  the 
paragraph  should  read:  "I.  James,  of  Rockstown  Castle,  b.  4th  May, 
1771 ;  d.  25th  July,  1828,  This  James  was  twice  married  :  first,  in  1801, 
to  Miss  Fitzgerald,  sister  of  Thomas  Wridon  Fitzgerald,  Esq.,  Barrister-at- 
Law,  and  by  her  (who  d.  5th  May,  1806)  had  a  daughter  Margaret  Avho, 
on  the  28th  July,  1816,  married  David  Kelly,  Esq.,  and  had  issue;  and, 
secondly,  James  Barry  married  Mary  (d.  25th  July,  1848),  daughter  of 
John  Moloney,  Esq.,  of  Cragg,  county  Clare,  and  by  her  had: 

1.  Dillyana,  who  on  the  11th  July,  1846,  married  Ralph  Westropp 

Brereton,  Esq.,  of  Ballyadams,  Queen's  County,  and  had  issue. 

2.  Mary,  who  on  the  8th  Jan.,  1833,  married  Henry  Potter,  Esq.,  of 

Ballynolan,  county  Limerick,  and  had  issue. 

3.  Alice,  who  on  the  10th  November,  1841,  married  Chartres  Brew 

Molonj',  Esq.,  and  had  issue. 

4.  James,  who  died  young,  on  the  11th  July,  1815." 

Same  page  and  column,  line  20  from  top,  the  paragraph  should  read  : 
"II.  Thomas,  b.  1773;  d.,  January,  1838.  He  married  in  1818  Miss 
Hartwell,  of  Bruff,  and  had  issue.  His  son  James  Hartwell  Barry  (who 
d.  28th  August,  1871)  married  in  February,  1844,  Anastatia,  daughter  of 
Michael  O'Meara,  Esq.,  of  Bonladuff,  Thurles,  and  had  : 

1.  Michael  Joseph,  M.D.,  of  Thurles. 

2.  Sarah,  who  married  Michael  O'Gorman,  Esq." 


In  p.  527,  infra,  at  No.  132,  the  paragraph  should  read  :  "  Oliver  Warren, 
of  Warrenstown,  county  Meath,  a  Lieutenant  in  the  Royal  Navy ;  also 
Admiral  Sir  Peter  Warren ;  and  Anne  Warren,  who  married  Christopher 
Johnson,  of  Smithstown,  county  Meath,  and  had  General  Sir  William 
Johnson  of  New  York." 



Of  Fermanagh,  Ireland  ;  and  America. 
Arms  :  Gu.  an  escutcheon  and  orle  of  martlets  ar. 

In  the  Library  of  Thirlestain  House,  Cheltenham,  England,  there  is  a 
manuscript  of  Sir  William  Betham's,  No.  13,293  in  Catalogue,  and  entitled 
English  Families  in  Ireland,  from  which  the  following  is  an  extract : — 

•'The  family  of  Chittog  are  famous  in  the  barony  of  Lurg,  in  this  county  (Fer- 
managh), for  being  stout,  forward,  liberal  people,  particularly  the  son  John  of  Mr. 
Thomas,  the  eldest  of  Mr.  Henry  Chittog,  a  gentleman  freeholder  of  good  credit  and 
respect.  His  freehold  lies  near  Pettigo,  in  the  lower  end  of  the  county,  bordering  on 
Lough  Erne,  a  pretty,  liandsome  seat.  His  grandfather,  Mr.  Thomas .  Chittog,  came 
from  England,  in  the  reign  of  King  James  I.  His  wife  was  sister  to  the  king  in  (the 
Isle  of)  Mann,  and  grandmother  to  Mr.  John  Chittog.  The  said  Mr.  Henry*  Chittog  is 
married  in  the  family  of  Johnstone,  daughter  of  Mr.  Johnstone,  who  was  a  gentleman 
of  credit  and  good  relations  in  this  county,  and  by  this  gentlewoman  he  has  many 
children.  Now  the  proper  name  of  this  family  is  Chideocf:.  But  from  the  time  they 
came  to  Ireland  they  were  called  by  every  possible  misnomer  ;  and  about  the  beginning 
of  the  last  century  a  person  named  Chittock,  in  no  way  related  to  or  connected  with 
the  Chideocks,  settled  in  Fermanagh,  after  which  the  country  people  began  to  call  the 
Chideocks  "  Chittick"  and  they  fell  into  the  misnomer." 

Henry  Blennerhasset's  daughter  Deborah  had,  by  her  second  husband 
Captain  James  Colquhoun,  two  daughters  :  Lillias,  the  eider,t  married 
Alexander  Squire  of  Londonderry,  and  had  by  him  two  sons  and  one 
daughter;  the  elder  son  James  alone  survived  infancy.  This  James 
Squire  married  Catherine  Chittage,  alias  Chideock,  of  Muckross,  county 
Fermanagh,  and  by  her  had  two  sons,  William  and  Leslie  :  Leslie  died  a 
minor  and  unmarried  ;  William  married  Anne,  daughter  of  Captain  James 
Austin,  who,  in  her  marriage  settlement,  is  designated  of  Sharon  Kectory, 
county  Donegal,  where  she  resided  with  her  uncle  and  guardian  John 
Waller,  Senior  Fellow  of  Trinity  College,  Dublin,  and  Rector  of  Ray- 
mockey.  William  Squire  died  in  June,  1806,  and  left  four  children,  two 
of  whom  died  in  infancy ;  one  son,  William,  and  one  daughter,  Anne, 
survived  :  William  married  Harriet  Chideock,  and  left  by  her  one  son, 
Archer  Squire  (living  in  1888);  and  Anne  married  James  Chideock  (or 
Chittick),  by  whom  she  had  three  sons  (now  resident  in  New  York,  United 
States,  America),  and  two  daughters.    The  three  sons :  L  Squire  Leslie 

*  Henry:  It  maybe  worthy  of  remark  that,  in  keeping  with  the  popular  pronun- 
ciation of  his  sirname  in  his  locality,  this  Henry  Chittog,  in  his  will,  signs  his  name 
*'  Henry  Chittick."  The  Uhittogs,  or  Chideocks,  bought  their  freehold  from  Thomas, 
or  Sir  Leonard,  Blennerhasset,  who  was  an  undertaker  under  the  "Plantation  of 

t  Elder  :  There  are  at  present  no  representatives  of  Penuel,  the  younger  daughter 
of  Captain  James  Colquhoun.  She  married  James  Irvine,  Physician  to  the  "  Pre- 
tender," at  Rome,  and  left  by  him  one  son,  James  Irvine,  who  died  at  Manorcunning- 
ham,  AD.  1756,  and  bequeathed  the  estate  to  his  cousin,  James  Squire,  the  eldest  son 
of  Alexander  Squire,  of  Londonderry,  above  mentioned.

*  Eentoul:  The  family  of  "Rentoul"  is  of  if/i^i^ertof  origin.  At  the  Revocation  of 
the  Edict  of  Nantes,  a  gentleman  named  Rintoid  settled  in  Scotland.  He  had  three 
sons,  the  eldest  of  whom  settled  in  Perthshire,  where  he  obtained  some  land.  la 
after  generations  the  eldest  son  retained  the  homestead,  while  the  younger  sons 
became  professional  men.  Previous  to  a.d.  1790  James  Rintoul,  then  a  Licentiate  of 
the  Church  of  Scotland,  was  sent  to  administer  to  the  Presbyterian  Congregation  of 
Kay.  By  his  Church's  orders  he  had  to  remam  in  Ireland  for  two  years  ;  during 
which  time  he  married  Anne,  daughter  of  the  Rev.  Robert  Reed,  late  minister  of  Kay, 
and  he  decided  to  remain  in  Ireland.  By  Anne  Reed  he  had  a  family  ;  their  eldest 
son,  Alexander,  M.D.,  D.D.,  of  Errily  House,  Manorcunningham,  became  the  husband 
of  Erminda,  daughter  of  James  Chideock  (or  Chittick),  as  above  mentioned.  Or, 
more  fully  given,  the  genealogy  of  the  Rev.  Alexander  Rentoul,  of  Errily  House, 
Manorcunningham,  is  as  follows  :  Thomas  Blennerhagset  married  Elizabeth,  daughter 
of  Sir  William  Sandys,  of  Dublin.  Their  eldest  son,  Sir  Leonard  Blennerhasset, 
married  Deborah,  daughter  of  Sir  Henry  Mervyn,  of  Petersfield  (M.P.  for  Wotton 
Basset  in  1614,  Admiral  of  the  "Narrow  Seas  "  in  I646j,  by  his  wife  Christian  Audley, 
fourth  daughter  of  the  first  Earl  of  Castlehaven  and  his  wife  Lucy  Mervyn.  (The 
20th  Baron  Audley  died  18th  April,  1872,  leaving  no  male  issue  and  the  title  is  now 
in  abeyance.)  Sir  Leonard  Blennerhasset  was  succeeded  by  his  son  Henry,  who  in 
1664  was  elected  M.P.  for  Fermanagh,  and  who  married  Phoebe,  daughter  of  Sir 
George  Hume,  of  Castle  Hume.  By  her  he  had  only  two  daughters — 1.  Deborah  ;  2. 
Mary.  Deborah  was  twice  married  :  first,  to  Christopher,  eldest  son  of  Sir  George 
Irvine,  by  whom  she  had  no  issue  ;  her  second  husband  was  Captain  James  Colqahoun, 
the  second  son  of  Sir  James  Colquhoun  (who  was  the  19th  of  Colquhoun,  and  21st  of 
Luss),  by  his  wife  Penuel,  granddaughter  of  Sir  James  Cunningham,  the  18th  of  Glen- 
garnock,  by  his  wife  Lady  Catherine,  daughter  of  James,  7th  Earl  of  Glencairne. 
James  Colquhoun  died  in  Flanders  in  1699,  leaving  no  male  issue;  his  only  two 
daughters  were  Lillias  and  Penuel,  as  above  mentioned.

WARREN.   (No.  2). 

Of  the  County  Down. 

In  p.  448,  infra,  in  the  second  paragraph  of  this  family  paper,  read : — 
" Matthew  Warren  of  this  branch  (born  about  1675)  had  three  sons:  1. 
Thomas ;  2.  John ;  and  3.  William,  whose  children  died  in  infancy." 

In  the  third  paragraph,  fourth  line,  read : — "  Has  left  one  surviving 
son,  Mr.  Thomas  Warren,  of  Manitoba,"  &c. 


Bearing  on  the  last  paragraph,  p.  451,  infra,  Dr.  Bowles  Daly,  in  MyrcCs 
Journal  for  October,  ISSS,  in  an  interesting  article  on  Irish  Industries, 
points  out  that  while  the  civilized  world  is  clothed  out  of  four  materials — 
silk,  cotton,  flax,  and  wool — Ireland  produces  in  abundance  two  of  these 
commodities  (flax  and  wool),  and  could  make  ten  times  as  much  if  required. 
Ireland,  he  says,  was  thoroughly  skilled  in  wool-work  long  before  the 
Flemish  refugees  had  begun  to  teach  the  art  to  English  workers  ;  and  Irish 
woollen  stuff  had  an  ancient  history,  and  was  valued  and  known  centuries 
before  the  first  cloth  manufacture  was  introduced  into  England.  "  The 
origin  of  the  Irish  woollen  fabric  is  lost  in  the  mist  of  ages.  In  the  thir- 
teenth and  fourteenth  centuries  the  Popes  of  Rome  used  to  send  their 
agents  to  several  of  the  Irish  towns  to  purchase  woollen  fabric  for  the 
construction  of  those  gorgeous  mantles  used  on  State  occasions ;  the 
ingenious  designs  and  ornamentation  were  invariably  the  work  of  Irish 
artists.  In  fact,  the  old  Irish  frieze  was  eagerly  bought  up  in  Spain  and 
Italy,  and  so  prized,  that  garments  made  of  it  were  entered  as  heirlooms  in 
the  wills  of  the  Florentine  citizens."

"  The  savage  loves  his  native  shore, 

Though  rude  the  soil  and  chill  the  air  ; 
Then  well  may  Erin's  sons  adore 
An  Isle  which  nature  formed  so  fair  !" 

This  Volume'^*  contains,  so  far  as  we  have  collected  them,  the  names  of 
those  Irish  families  who  claim  to  be  of  Danish,  Norman,  English,  Welsh, 
Scottish,  Huguenot,  and  Palatine  extraction,  and  who  from  time  to  time 
settled  in  Ireland  since  the  English  invasion.  While,  however,  some  of 
those  names  are  no  doubt  of  foreign  origin,  it  will  be  seen  that  others  of 
them  are  of  Irish  descent,  which  have  heretofore  been  considered  as  of 
foreign  extraction.  No  doubt  the  love  of  country  for  which  the  Celts,  in 
whatever  clime,  have  ever  been  proverbial,  may  have  led  some  of  those 
families  to  return  to  Ireland,  as  opportunities  offered ;  for,  if  Scotland's 
friendly  Bardf  could  admire  the  Emerald  Isle,  as  by  him  expressed  in  the 
stanza  which  heads  this  page,  it  is  not  difficult  to  understand  why,  in  weal 
or  in  woe,  the  Irish  Celt,  in  exile,f  so  intensely  loves  his  native  country,  or 
the  loved  land  of  his  fathers,  that  he  ever  feels  a  home  sickness  to  visit  his 

"  First  flower  of  the  earth  and  first  gem  of  the  sea." 

As  the  genealogies  herein  contained  are  given  in  alphabetical  order,  and 
that  therefore  Anglo-Norman,  Anglo-Irish,  and  Scottish-Irish  families  are 
necessarily  intermixed,  we  give  them  under  the  heading  "Irish  Pedi- 
grees, Anglo-Irish  and  other  Genealogies  ;"  as  distinguished  from  the 
genealogies  recorded  in  Vol.  L,  which  relates  to  families  of  the  Milesian- 
Irish  Race.

X  Exile  :  How  feeling  is  the  song  of  the  Irish  Exile  : 

Oh,  Erin,  Mavoumwn  !  how  sad  is  the  parting, 
Dear  home  of  our  childhood,  for  ever  from  thee  t 

Hov?  bitter  and  burning  the  tears  that  are  starting, 
As  we  sigh  a  ferewell  to  thee,  Brin  Machree  ! 

My  country  !  my  corOrtry !  tho'  far  from  that  loved  earth, 
Where  first  I  drew  breath,  from  these  lips  it  should  go. 

My  last  sigh  will  be  thine,  darling  land  of  my  birth. 
My  last  prayer  for  thee,  Erin,  in  welfare  or  woe. 

VOL.  n.  A 


The  following  few  Poems,  by  George  Nugent  Reynolds,  will  give  the. 
reader  an  idea  of  the  Irish  exile's  intense  love  of  his  native  country  : 


Oh,  land  of  my  forefathers,  sea-girded  Erin  ! 

My  heart  throbs  aloud  as  thy  hills  disappear. 
Fatuity  !  oh,  thou  wast  dreadful  and  daring 

To  usher  me  thus  on  a  pathless  career. 
But,  oh,  'tis  too  late  now  my  loss  to  recover, — 
The  land-breezes  swelling,  the  spray  dashing  over,— 
And  green-bosom'd  Erin,  I  scarcely  discover  ; 

Like  blue  wreathy  vapours  her  mountains  appear. 

An  exile,  I  fly  to  the  banks  of  Ohio, 

Where  gloomy  dark  deserts  bewilder  the  way  ; 

Where  no  tuneful  Orpheus  or  soft-voic6d  Thalia 
Enlivens  the  heart  with  a  soul-telling  lay  ; 

Where  fell  snakes  are  hissing  and  dire  monsters  screaming, 

Where  death-pregnant  lightnings  are  dreadfully  gleaming. 

And  direful  contagion  destruction  proclaiming, 
Infest  every  vale  and  embitter  each  day. 

And  oh  !  how  contrasted  with  dear  native  Erin, 
Whose  rich  herbage  landscapes  I  tearfully  leave,_ 

Whose  heath-crested  hills  are  salubrious  and  cheering, 
Whose  daughters  are  peerless,  whose  sons  true  and  brave. 

The  dismal  tornado  ne'er  prostrates  her  towers, 

No  grim-fronted  monster  her  children  devours, 

Nor  breezes  malignant  shed  death  through  her  bowers, 
All  fanned  by  the  soft-whistling  gales  of  the  wave. 

Ah.  man  !  thou  art  fretful,  contentless,  and  wavering ; 

Thy  blessings  are  countless  ;  but  thou  mean  and  vile  ; 
The  hand  of  Jehovah  extending  and  favouring, 

Peculiarly  visits  the  Emeral  Isle. 
Yet  outcast  of  Nature,  how  blind  to  true  pleasure, 
Thou  bart'rest  enjoyment  for  base  sordid  treasure. 
And  home  thou  forsakest,  though  dear  beyond  measure, 

Where  friendship  and  freedom  in  harmony  smile. 


Farewell,  and  for  ever,  my  lov'd  Isle  of  sorrow, 

Thy  green  vales  and  mountains  delight  me  no  more  ; 
My  bark's  on  the  wave,  and  the  noon  of  to-morrow 
'  Will  see  the  poor  exile,  far,  far  from  thy  shore. 

Again,  my  lov'd  home,  I  may  never  behold  thee ; 

Thy  hope  was  a  meteor— thy  glory  a  dream ; 
Accurst  be  the  dastards,  the  slaves  that  have  sold  thee, 

And  doomed  thee,  lost  Erin,  to  bondage  and  shame. 

The  senseless,  the  cold,  from  remembrance  may  wean  them. 
Though  the  world  they  unlov'd,  and  unloving  may  roam  ; 

But  the  heart  of  the  patriot— though  seas  roll  between  them- 
Forgets  not  the  smiles  of  his  once  happy  home. 


Time  may  roll  o'er  me  its  circles  uncheering, 
Columbia's  proud  forests  around  me  shall  wave  ; 

But  the  exile  shall  never  forget  thee,  lov'd  Erin, 
Till  unmourn'd  he  sleeps  in  a  far  foreign  grave. 


This  song,  whicli  was  claimed  by  Mr.  T.  Campbell,  was  composed  some 
time  prior  to  November,  1799,  on  the  subject  of  the  exile  of  John 
Corraick,  who  was  obliged  to  leave  Ireland  on  account  of  the  part  he  had 
taken  in  the  Irish  Insurrection  of  1798.  Mr.  Reynolds's  sister  (Mrs. 
Mary  Anne  MacNamara),  of  Lough  Sour,  county  of  Leitrim,  wrote  upwards 
of  one  hundred  copies  of  it  for  friends,  who  again  transcribed  it  for  others, 
so  that  a  travelling  harper  named  Richard  M'Closkey,  learned  it  in  Belfast 
about  the  time  of  Christmas,  1799.  Thus  it  was  well  known  in  parts  of 
Ireland  shortly  after  November,  1799. 

Early  in  1801,  some  one  sent  a  copy  of  this  song  to  the  Mormng 
Chronicle,  and  Mr,  Perry,  its  editor,  first  printed  it,  anonymously,  in  his 
impression  of  the  28th  January,  1801.  Mr.  Thomas  Campbell,  who  was 
then  at  Altona,  being  a  subscrilDer  to  the  Chronicle,  as  well  as  a  contributor 
to  its  columns,  having  received  that  issue,  and  seeing  in  it  this  song,  which 
was  so  applicable  to  the  case  of  a  Mr.  Anthony  M'Cann  of  Dundalk,  co. 
Louth,  then  a  political  exile  in  Altona,  copied  it  out,  suppressed  the  name 
of  the  paper,  and,  in  a  moment  of  weakness  and  vanity,  passed  it  off  on 
M'Cann  as  his  (Campbell's)  own  production.  M'Cann,  of  course,  believed 
him,  felt  highly  flattered  at  the  compliment,  and  grateful  for  what  he  must 
have  thought  Campbell's  feeling  and  sympathy  for  him,  the  deluded  refuo^ee 
sent  a  copy  of  it  to  his  friends  in  Dundalk,  in  March,  1801.  He  stated 
it  was  the  composition  of  a  Mr.  Campbell,  an  "English"  gentleman,  of 
great  poetic  talent,  who  v/as  staying  at  the  same  hotel  with  himself.  Mr. 
M'Cann  also  added  that  himself  and  Mr.  Campbell  were  intimate  friends, 
and  that  he  (M'Cann)  suggested  ,*' Erin  go  Bragh"  as  the  air  best  adapted 
for  it.  This  alone  would  show  that  Campbell  was  not  the  author ;  and, 
apart  from  all  historical  evidence,  the  identity  of  many  passages  in  the 
poems  " Green  were  the  Fields"  (which  we  give  in  Vol.1.)  and  "The 
Exile  of  Erin,"  together  with  the  spirit  which  breathes  in  each,  go  to  show 
that  one  and  the  same  mind  was  the  author  of  both.  Mrs.  Mary  Anne 
MacNamara,  Mr.  Richard  J.  Reynolds,  and  Miss  Bridget  J.  Reynolds,  ini 
1830,  proved  satisfactorily  that  Mr.  George  Nugent  Reynolds  was  thei 
undoubted  author  of — 

The  Exile  of  Erinn. 

There  came  to  the  beach  a  poor  exile  of  Erinn, 

The  dew  on  his  raiment  was  heavy  and  chill ; 
For  his  country  he  sighed,  when  at  twilight  repairing 

To  wander  by  the  wind-beaten  hill. 
But  the  day-star  attracted  his  eye's  sad  devotion, 
For  it  rose  o'er  hia  own  native  isle  of  the  ocean. 
Where  once  in  the  fire  of  his  youthful  emotion 
He  sang  the  bold  anthem  of  Erin  go  Bragh. 


Oh,  sad  is  my  fate,  said  the  heart-broken  stranger, 

The  wild  deer  and  wolf  to  a  covert  can  flee ; 
But  I  have  no  refuge  from  famine  and  danger, 

A  home  and  a  country  remain  not  to  me. 
Ah  !  never  again  in  the  green  sunny  bowers,  . 

Where  my  forefathers  lived,  shall  I  spend  the  sweet  hours. 
Or  cover  my  harp  with  the  wild  woven  flowers, 
And  strike  to  the  numbers  of  Erin  go  Bragh. 

Erin,  my  country,  though  sad  and  forsaken, 

In  dreams  I  revisit  thy  sea-beaten  shore, 
But  alas  !  in  a  far  foreign  land  I  awaken, 

And  sigh  for  the  friends  that  can  meet  me  no  more. 
Ah  !  cruel  fate,  wilt  thou  never  replace  me 
In  a  mansion  of  peace  where  no  perils  can  chase  me  ? 
Ah  !  never  again  shall  my  brothers  embrace  me — 
They  died  to  defend  me,  or  live  to  deplore. 

Where  is  my  cabin-door  fast  by  the  wild  wood  ? 

Sister  and  sire,  did  you  weep  for  its  fall  ? 
Where  is  the  mother  that  looked  on  my  childhood  ? 

And  where  is  the  bosom  friend  dearer  than  all  ? 
Oh,  my  sad  heart,  long  abandoned  by  pleasure, 
Why  did  it  doat  on  a  fast-fading  treasure  ? 
Tears  like  the  rain-drop  may  fall  without  measure, 
But  rapture  and  beauty  they  cannot  recall ! 

Yet,  all  its  sad  recollections  suppressing, 

One  dying  wish  my  lone  bosom  can  draw- 
Erin,  an  exile  bequeaths  thee  his  blessing, 

Land  of  my  forefathers,  Erin  go  Brag/i. 
Buried  and  cold,  when  my  heart  stills  its  motion, 
Green  be  thy  fields,  sweetest  isle  of  the  ocean, 
And  thy  harp-striking  bards  sing  aloud  with  devotion, 
Erin  Mavourneen,  Erin  go  Bragh  !

Captain    Patrick    Acheson,    of 
Edinburgh,  had: 

2.  Sir  Archibald,  Knt.,  and  Bart., 
of  Nova  Scotia,  ^nd  Secretary  for 
Scottish    affairs,    who    was    twice 

married  :  first,  to  Agnes ;  and 

secondly,  to  Margaret,  dau.  of  John 

Hamilton  (brother  to  the  Earl  of 
Abercorn).  By  said  Margaret,  Sir 
Archibald  had :  1.  Sir  Patrick, 
Bart.,  who  died  s.p. ;  2.  Sir  George, 
Bart. ;  3.  Jane ;  4.  Margaret. 

3.  Sir    George   Acheson,    Bart. : 
second  son  of  Sir  Archibald. 


Arms  :  Ar.  a  fesse  betw.  three  cocks'  heads  erased  sa. 

Tradition  says  that  the  first  of  this  family  in  this  country  came  to  Ireland 
with  Henry  II.,  from  Surrey,  in  England,  and  settled  at  Downpatrick  ;  but 
we  are  not  aware  that  any  persons  of  this  name  are  now  living  in  or  near 
that  town.  Three  branches  of  the  family  are,  however,  located  in  ]\lunster: 
one  branch  at  Ballynoe,  county  Carlow ;  another,  at  Wilton  Castle,  county 
Wexford  ;  and  another,  at  Dunmore,  county  Waterford. 

The  Waterford  branch  of  the  family  is  descended  from  the  Very  Eev. 
Alexander  Alcock,  Dean  of  Lismore,  who,  when'nineteen  years  of  age, 
entered  Trinity  College,  Dublin,  as  a  pensioner,  on  the  2nd  July,  1684  ; 
4ind  whose  father  was,  we  learn  from  the  Entrance  Book  of  Trinity  College  : 

"  Filius  Joanis  Alcock  de  Downpatrick  in  com.  Duensi." 

The  Dean  of  Lismore*  (d.  1747), 
married  Miss  Mason,  daughter  of 
Sir  John  Mason,  of  Waterford  (and 

sister  to  Aland  John  Mason,  M.P., 
county  AVaterford,  who  in  1739  mar. 
the   Countess   of  Grandison. — See 

*  Lismore  :  The  mother  of  the  Very  Rev.  Alexander  Alcock  was,  tradition  says,  the 
widow  of  the  Rev.  Mr.  Poe.  The  eldest  brother  of  this  Alexander  was  William  Alcock, 
who  was  the  head  of  the  Wilton  Brand),  county  Wexford.  He  had  a  son  (also  named 
William)  who  married  (the  sister-in-law  of  his  uncle,  the  Dean)  Miss  Mason,  and  had 
a  son,  Colonel  Wm.  Alcock,  who  niatried  the  daughter  of  the  then  Lord  Loftus  (the 
ancestor  of  the  present  Marquis  of  Ely)  ;  and  Colonel  Wm.  Alcock's  sister  married 
Snow,  Esq.,  Waterford. 

The  Colonel's  son  Henry  married,  first.  Miss  Chinerex,  daughter  of  the  then 
Rishop  of  Waterford.  She  died  young  ;  and  he  then  married  Miss  Usher,  daughter 
of  — —  Usher,  M.P.,  co.  Waterford.  'J  his  Henry  had  several  children,  among  them 
William  Congrive  Alcock,  M.P.,  co.  Wexford,  who  was  a  man  of  historic  notoriety. 
He  voted  against  the  •'  Union  ;"  and  fmight  the  most  celebrated  electioneering  duel 
of  the  time,  when  he  shot  Colclouph  of  Tintern.  He  never  married,  and  the  property, 
etc.  of  Wilton  Castle  fell  into  the  hands  of  his  brother  and  successor.  This  brother, 
who  was  named  "Harry,"  married  MiSB  Savage,  of  the  co.  Wexfofd  ;  they  were  the

sons,  the  youngest  of  whom  was  : 

2.  The  Venerable  Alexander 
Alcock,  Archdeacon  of  Waterford, 
who  mar.  Miss  Jocelyn  (sister  to  the 
then  Lord  Chancellor  of  Ireland, 
who  subsequently  became  "  Baron 
Newport,"  and  finally  the  "  Earl  of 
Roden"*),  and  had  a  large  family,

Waterford  :  eldest  son  of  Rev. 
Mason  Alcock  ;  mar.  Miss  Morris, 
of  Harbour  View,  county  Waterford, 
and  had : 

5.  Edward  H.  Alcock,  of  Grove 
House,  Dun  more  East,  Waterford  ; 
living  in  1887.

There  is  no  relationship,  that  we  can  find,  between  theabove-named  Alcocks  and 
those  of  Kilkenny,  who  can  claim  descent  from  the  Rev.  Nathaniel  Alcock,  who,  a.d. 
1628,  was  Rector  of  Ferns,  county  Wexford  ;  and  who  is  worthily  represented  by 
Surgeon-Major  Nathaniel  Alcock,  now  (1887)  livini^at  Ballybrack,  county  Dublin.  It 
is  asserted  that  this  branch  of  the  family  originally  catne  from  Lancashire ;  while  the 
Carlow,  Wexford,  and  Waterford  branches  originally  came  from  Surrey.  In  confir- 
mation of  tliis  tradition  it  may  be  worth  while  to  here  insert  the  following  anecdote  ; 
Some  thirty  years  ago,  Thomas  Alcock  was  M.P.  for  Surrey,  and  happening  one  day 
to  be  in  conversation  with  his  namesake,  the  M.P.  for  Waterford,  the  English  gentle- 
man asked  the  other  if  he  had  ever  met  any  of  his  name  in  Ii^eland.  His  answer  was 
"Yes;"  that  there  were  some  of  them  in  Waterford.  Indeed!  said  the  other;  that 
confirms  a  tradition  in  our  family,  that  a  branch  of  us  went  over  to  Ireland  with  Henry 
II.,  and  then  settled  somewhere  in  Ulster  ;  further  adding  :  "  There  is  also  a  curious 
tradition  in  our  family  that  we  are  descended,  by  a  morganatic  marriage,  from  Charle 
magne."  It  is  strange,  that  this  tradition  has  always  existed  in  the  Waterford  branch 
of  the  family,  as  well.  We  find  that  the  oldest  death  register  in  the  Cathedral  of 
Waterford  was  that  of  "  Charles  Alcock,  Merchant,"  who  died  circa  A.D.  1650. 

There  are  other  families  of  Alcock  in  Ireland,  some  of  whom  came  over  with  Sir 
Walter  Raleigh.  A  Quaker  family  of  the  name  is,  or  lately  was,  located  in  Cork,  but 
we  are  at  present  unable  to  trace  their  descent.

This  family-name  appears  to  bean  anglicised  form  of  the  Irish  O'Aillemeair 
("aille:"  Irish,  the  superlative  of  "alain,"  fair,  hcmdsome;  "  mear," 
sprightly,  jolly,  merry),  meaning  the  descendants  of  Aillemear,  "the  very 
handsome  and  sprightly  man."  The  earliest  notice  of  the  name  that  we 
met  with  in  our  research  is  in  the  MS.  Vol.  F.  1.  21,  in  the  Library  of 
Trin.  Coll.  Dublin,  in  which  the  name  ^i^mer  is  mentioned  as  being  settled 
in  the  county  Kildare,  immediately  after  the  English  invasion.  In  the 
tenth  of  Henry  VL,  A.D.  1421,  we  find  Richard  Aylraer,  Esq.,  of  Lyons, 
county  Kildare,*  mentioned  as  one  of  the  Keepers  of  the  Peace  for  that 
county,  as  well  as  for  the  adjoining  county  of  Dublin,

Two  different  origins  of  this  family  are  given  by  genealogists :  namely 
Thomas  Balbhan  Fitzmaurice,  and  2.  Baud  win  or  Baldwin,  Earl  of  Flanders'. 
Tlie  former  was  son  to  Patrick,  the  seventh  lord  of  Kerry ;  and  the  other 
■was  a  nobleman  attached  to  the  court  of  Charles  the  Bold,  Kinw  of 
France,  who  created  him  "  earl  of  Flanders."  This  Baudwin  married 
Judith,  daughter  of  Charles  the  Bold,  and  granddaughter  of  Charlemagne 
widow  of  Ethelwolf,  King  of  England,  and  stepmother  of  Kino-  Allred 
the  Great. 

We  can  trace  back  to  Henry  Baldwin,  a  ranger  of  Woods  and  Forests 
in  Shropshire,  who  married  Elinor,  daughter  of  Sir  Edward  Herbert  of 
Red  Castle,  who  was  the  second  son  of  the  first  Lord  Pembroke,  by  Lady 
Anne,  daughter  of  Lord  Paar,  of  Kendall,  and  sister  of  Lady  Catherine 
Paar  (or  Paer),  surviving  queen  of  Henry  VIIL,  King  of  England.  That 
Henry  Baldwin  had  three  sons,  who  settled  in  Ireland  in  the  time  of  Queen 
Elizabeth,  the  eldestof  whom  was  Henryj  from  this  Henry,  the  O'Baldwin

Nicholas  Barnewall,  Lord  Kingsland,  Avas  an  officer  in  Lord  Limerick's: 
Dragoons.  His  family  was  long  settled  at  Turvey,  in  the  county  Dublin. 
He  was  the  third  bearer  of  the  "  Kingsland"  title,  which  was  bestowed 
upon  his  grandfatiier  by  Charles  L  for  eminent  loyalty.  He  married 
Mary,  youngest  daughter  of  George  Count  Hamilton,  and  soon  after 
entered  King  James's  Irish  Army,  as  Captain  of  a  troop  in  Lord  Limerick's 
Dragoons,  with  which  regiment  he  followed  the  fortunes  of  his  legitimate 
sovereign  to  the  last.  He  fought  at  the  Boyne,  at  Aughrim,  and  at 
Limerick,  for  which  he  was  outlawed  by  the  Williamites  ;  but,  being 
included  in  that  celebrated  Treaty,  his  outlawry  was  reversed  and  he  was 
restored  to  his  honours.  He  was  summoned  to  King  William's  first 
Parliament ;  but,  though  taking  the  oath  of  allegiance  to  that  Monarch, 
he  refused  to  take  other  tests  which  were  against  Lis  conscience,  as  a 
Roman  Catholic,  and  was  accordingly  prevented  from  taking  his  seat- 
He  died  on  the  14th  June,  1725,  leaving  issue  two  sons  and  four  daughters. 
His  sous  were:  1.  Henry  Benedict,  who  succeeded  to  his  title  as  fourth 
lord ;  and  2.  George,  born  24th  November,  1711. 

Henry  Benedict,  born  1st  Feb.,  1708,  married  Honoria,  daughter  of 
Peter  Daly,  of  Quansbury,  county  Galway ;  no  issue,  at  least  up  to  1768.

was  Matthew,  who  died  in  Dec,  1833,  s.p.,  leaving  a  widow,  in  reference 
to  whom  the  following  paragraph  appeared  in  the  London  Times  of  26th 
IVIarch,  1878:^ 


"  The  Earl  of  Beaconsfield  has  recommended  a  grant  from  the  Royal  Bounty  Fund 
of  £100  to  the  Universal  Beneficent  Society,  15  Soho-square,  to  be  applied  for  the 
benefit  of  Viscountess  Kingsland,  one  of  the  society's  pensioners."  The  public  will 
naturally  desire  to'  know  something  concerning — first,  the  Viscountess  Kingsland, 
and  next  as  to  the  society  that  has  obtained  for  her  such  salutary  relief.  We  have 
made  inquiries  on  the  subject,  and  communicate  the  following  particulars  : — Vis- 
countess Kingsland  was  married  to  the  late  viscount  iu  1819.  After  his  death  the 
interest  on  the  sum  of  £1,200  Was  het  only  means  of  support.  One  of  the  two  trustees 
appointed  having  died,  the  other  trustee,  her  owii  brother,  absconded  with  the  principal 
and  left  her  completely  destitute  and  penniless.  The  authorities  of  the  parish  in  which 
she  resided  then  allowed  her  out-door  relief  at  the  rate  of  2s.  6d.  per  week,  and  with 
her  needle  she  managed  to  eke  out  an  existence,  earning  weekly  on  an  average  from 
2s.  to  3s.  She  lived  in  a  small  room  in  Lambeth  in  extreme  poverty,  and  endured  fcttr 
a  long  time  in  silence  her  hard  lot.  At  last  in  her  distress  she  applied  to  a  subscriber 
to  the  society,  who  brought  the  case  to  the  notice  of  the  council.  Satisfactory  evidence 
and  certificates  having  been  obtained  verifying  the  truth  of  her  statement  and  con- 
firming her  sad  tale  of  woe,  she  was  placed  on  the  list  of  the  society's  pensioners. 
Matthew  Barnewall,  sixth  Viscount  Barnewallof  Kingsland,  in  the  peerage  of  Ireland, " 
died  in  December,  1833,  when  his  title  became  extinct,  he  having  no  male  issue  or 
heir.  He  married,  2nd  January,  1819,  Julia,  daughter  of  Mr.  John  Willis  (physician), 
who  is  the  present  Viscountess.  Lady  Kingsland  has  no  relatives  living  who  are  in  a 
position  to  assist  her,  her  sister  being  herself  a  pensioner  on  Government,  and  receiving 
£40  a  year.  The  sister  lives  with  her  two  daughters,  who  are  engaged  as  machinists 
(sewing  machines).  The  third  daughter  of  that  sister  lives  with  Lady  Kingsland,  and 
earns  a  small  weekly  pittance  by  braiding  mantles  and  other  needlework.  The  house 
in  which  they  reside  has  been  condemned,  and  will  shortly  be  pulled  down.  They 
occupy  one  small  back  room  about  13  feet  square,  in  which  there  is  scarcely  any  furni- 
ture. Lady  Kingsland's  bedstead  is  only  an  apology  for  this  necessary  piece  of  furni- 
ture ;  and  her  niece  has  none  at  all,  but  sleeps  on  the  boards  at  night,  or  rather  in  the 
morning,  when  she  has  finished  her  daily  toil.  Lady  Kingsland  has  continued  her 
needlework,  but  this  she  is  obliged  to  confine  to  shirt-making.  She  is  remunerated 
at  the  rate  of  2d.  for  each  shirt  made  !  It  has  been  decided,  with  Lord  Beaconfield's 
approval,  to  expend  the  £100  grant  in  purchasing  an  annuity  of  about  £10  or  £12  a 
year  for  Lady  Kingsland,  after  laying  out  a  small  sum  in  making  a  new  apartment  to 
be  procured  for  her  ladyship  a  little  more  comfortable  than  that  which  she  occuijies  at 
present." — Social  Notes,  a.b.  1878.

According  to  A.  Crossly's  Peerage,  this  family  is  a  long  time  in  Ireland. 
In  1445  Philip  Bellew,  Esq.,  was  Bailiff  of  the  City  of  Dublin.  From 
him  descended  James  Bellew,  Avho  in  1598  was  Mayor  of  Dublin;  and 
from  him  descended  Sir  John  Bellew,  Bart.,  P.O.  to  King  James  II.,  and 
Colonel  in  his  Army  ;  he  was  the  first  Peer  in  the  Bellew  family.  Baron 
Bellew  married  a  daughter  of  Lord  Athenry,  and  had  two  sons:  1. 
Matthew,  who  died  s.p. ;  and  2.  Richard,  who  succeeded  his  father,  and 
had  a  son  John,  who  was  a  minor  in  1724.  This  Captain  the  Honble. 
Richard  Bellew  commenced  his  military  service  as  Lieutenant  in  Dongan's 
Horse,  and  served  through  the  war  of  the  .Revolution.  After  the  Battle 
of  Aughrim,  he  was  appointed  to  the  command  of  Tyrconnell's  Horse 
vacant  by  the  death  in  that  fight  of  his  relative  Colonel  Walter  Nugent. 
On  the  termination  of  the  war  in  Ireland,  in  1691,  Col.  Bellew  brought 
his  regiment  to  France,  where  ifc  was  called  "  The  King  of  England's 
Dismounted  Dragoons."  During  his  service  in  France,  being  as  he  con- 
sidered, unjustly  deprived  of  his  command,*  Col.  Bellew  returned  to  Ire- 
land, where,  on  the  death  of  his  elder  brother  in  1694,  he  became  third 
Lord  Bellew.     Next  year  he  married  the  widow  of  the  -second  Earl  of 

*  Command :  Cellew  was  deprived  of  his  command  in  favour  of  Thos.  Maxwell, 
a  Scot.

This  family  derives  its  name  from  the  toAvn  of  JRellingham,  county  North- 
umberland, England,  where  it  appears  to  have  been  seated  immediately 
after  the  Conquest ;  for,  we  read  of  perpetual  feuds  in  the  reigns  of 
William  the  Conqueror  and  William  Rufus,  between  Alan  do  Bellingham 
and  the  Charltons  of  Haslcyside  ;  the  descendants  of  the  latter  still  own  a 
mansion  near  the  town,  while  the  Bellingham?,  once  so  powerful,  have 
altogether  disappeared  from  the  county,  though  certain  "  quit  rents"  were 
paid  to  a  representative  of  that  family  for  land  in  North  Tynedale,  down 
to  as  late  a  period  as  1774. 

Among  the  many  distinguished  members  of  this  family  may  be 
mentioned  William  Bellingham  of  Wolneston,  whose  daughter,  Maud, 
married  circa  1316  William  Bellasis  of  Bellasis. 

Henry  Bellingham  of  Bellingham  (whoso  daughter  married  Sir  James 
Leyborne  of  Cunswick)  was  made  a  Knight  Banneret  by  King  Henry  VI., 
after  the  battle  of  Wakefield ;  his  son.  Sir  Roger,  was  made  a  Knight 
Banneret  after  the  battle  of  Stoke,  in  1487,  and  left  an  only  son  Sir  Robert 
(also  knighted  on  the  field),  who  died  without  issue. 

Sir  Edward  Bellingham,  called  by  Leland  in  his  History  of  Ireland,  "a 
brave  and  experienced  commander,"  was  of  the  Privy  Council  of  King 
Edward  VI.,  who  sent  him  over  to  bo  Lord  Deputy  of  Ireland  in  15489. 
The  most  important  branch  of  the  family  settled  at  Levens,  county  West- 
moreland, which  was  purchased  by  Richard  de  Bellingham,  whose  daughter 
Mary  married  Sir  John  de  Harrington,  and  died  in  1348.  His  grandson, 
Sir  Robert,  who  was  knighted  by  Henry  V.  in  1413,  married  Elizabeth, 
daughter  of  Sir  Thomas  Tunstall  of  Thurland,  and  by  her  had  eight  sons, 
who  founde<3  branches  of  the  family  in  different  parts  of  the  country. 
From  Richard,  his  second  son,  descended  the  Bellinghamsof  Lincolnshire, 
and  of  Colonial  Massachusetts.  From  Thomas,  the  fourth  son,  the 
Bellinghams  of  Sussex  and  Surrey  are  descended ;  and  from  Alan,  the 
eighth  son,  the  Bellinghams  of  Helsington  and  Levins.  This  Alan  was 
the  famous  Treasurer  of  Berwick,  and  Deputy  Warden  of  the  Marches  ; 
who  received  from  Henry  VIII.  a  grant  of  the  barony  of  Kendal  called 
the  "  Lumley  Fee,"  Of  him  was  made  the  rhyme  still  to  be  seen  on  one

2.  Meyler  De  Bermingham :  son 
of  William ;  was  the  ancestor  of 
all  those  of  that  siraame  in  Ireland. 
He  had  three  sons — 1.  Gilbert,  of 
Moigh ;  2.  Piers ;  3.  John,  who 
was  lord  justice  of  Ireland.  From 
the  first  and  third  sons  we  find  no 
issue  ;  but  the  second  left  issue — 

3.  Piers  :  second  son  of  Meyler. 

4.  Rickard  :  his  son ;  who  was 
called  Eisdeard  na-gCath  (meaning 
"Richard  of  the  Battles"),  from 
the  many  battles  by  him  fought 
and  won  ;  amongst  which  were  the 
battle  of  Togher,  the  battle  of  Finlo, 
and  the  battle  of  Atlia-na-RiogJi 
(literally  the  "  Ford  of  the  Kings"), 
now  called  ^//lenr?/:  from  the  Kings 
there  slain,  viz. : — the  king  of  Con- 
naught  ;  O'Kelly,  king  of  Hy-Maine; 
together  with  most  of  the  nobility 
of  Connaught  and  Munster,  who  in 
those  days  were  called  petty  Kings 
of  the  territories  they  possessed. 
According  to  some  annalists  this 
Rickard  na-gCath  left  three  sons — 
1.  Thomas,  who  on  the  winning  of 
that  battle,  was  created  "  baron  of 
Athenryj"  2.  William,  who  was 
archbishop  of  Tuam ;  3.  Richard 
Ruadh,  who  was  ancestor  of  the 
Berminghams  of  Leinster,  and 
whose  son.  Sir  John  De  Berming- 
ham  was  created  "earl  of  Louth," 
by  King  Edward  the  Second,  a.d. 

1319,  for  the  service  performed  by 
him  and  Sir  Richard  LeTuite  in  a 
great  battle  by  them  fought  against 
Edward  Le  Bruice  (or  Edward 
Bruce),  brother  of  Robert  Bruce, 
King  of  Scotland,  at  Faughart,  near 
Dundalk,  in  which  battle  the  said 
Edward  Bruce  was  slain  (some  say 
by  the  hands  of  Sir  Richard  Le 
Tuite),  and  his  army  routed  and 
most  of  them  slain. 

In  other  copies  (of  the  "Geneal- 
ogies") I  find  the  said  Eisdeard  na- 
gCath  to  have  another  son  named 
Piers,  from  whom  the  lords  barons  of 
Athenrywere  descended,  as  follows :

families  of  this  name  in  the  west  of  Ireland.  This  Richard  Caddie  was 
sheriff  of  Connaught  in  A.D,  1306;  and  was  "bailiffe  of  Gal  way  under 
Richard  de  Burgo,  the  Red  Earl  of  Ulster,"  in  A.D.  1312.

According  to  Nicholson's  History  of  Westmoreland  (Vol.  I.,  p.  253),  this 
sirname  is  derived  from  Bland  or  Bland's  Gill,  in  the  chapel  of  How  Gill 
and  parish  of  Sedburg,  in  Yorkshire,  England.  Thoresby  says  (see 
Ducatus  Leodensis,  Vol.  I.  p.  126),  that  the  family  took  its  name  from  the 
Hamlet  of  Blond.  The  earliest  mention,  however,  that  we  find  of  the 
name  is  in  the  year  1132  ;  in  connection  with  the  Abbey  of  Fountains,  of 
which  Richard,  son  of  Hugh  Bland,  of  Disford,  was  a  benefactor.  The 
name  "  Bland"  was  then  sometimes  written  Blund,  which  has  been 
modernized  Blunt  and  Blount. 

One  branch  of  this  family  has  resided  at  Orton,  in  Westmoreland, 
since  1377  ;  and  another  settled  in  Ireland.  The  Rev.  James  Bland,  in 
1692,  was  Vicar  of  Killarney ;  and  Dean  of  Ardfert  in  1721.  He  m. 
Lucy,  daughter  of  Sir  Francis  Brereton,  of  Dublin ;  and  his  son  Francis, 

*  Blalce  :  Others  derive  Blach  and  BIaI:e  from  Blathmac,  a  younger  brother  of 
Niall  Caille,  the  166th  Monarch  of  Ireland  who  is  No.  98  on  the  (No.  2)  "  O'Neill"

t  BlaJce:  According  to  Burke,  the  "  Blake"  family  was  founded  by  Richard  Blake, 
who,  in  1185,  came  to  Ireland  with  Prince  John,  afterwards  King  John  ;  and  got 
grants  of  land  in  Galway  and  Mayo.

Governor  of  Ireland  in  1227  j  m,

Kent ;  2.  Thomas ;  3.  Geoffrey,  who 
was  abbot  of  Ely.  This  Rickard's 
half  brother,  Ricard  Oge  (or  Rickard

Burke,  of  Clanrickard,  who  were 
called  "  Clanricarde  Oge,"  to  dis- 
tinguish them  from  the  descendants 
of  Ricard  Mdr,  lords  of  Connaught, 
who  spelled  the  name  Bourke.  This 
Richard  Mor  de  Burc,  who  died  in 
1243,  had  a  son  Richard,  from 
whom  the  Bourkes  of  the  Suir,  in 
the  CO.  Tipperary,  were  descended  ;. 
and  this  Richard's  son  Edmund

*  William :  According  to  some  Annalists,  William  Fitzadelm  de  Burgo  was 
"  Bewer"  to  Henry  the  Second,  King  of  England,  who,  a.b.  U77,  after  the  death  of 
the  wife  of  the  said  William,  made  him  "  lord  justice  of  Ireland,"  where,  by  his  second 
wife,  Una,  he  had  one  son  called  by  some  Ricard  Og  [oge],  or  Kickard  the  younger  (to 
distinguish  him  from  his  elder  brother  Rickard  M6r,  or  Rickard  the  Elder).  These 
two  Rickards  were  also  each  called  "  Uilliam,"  namely,  Uilliam  Mdr,  or  William  the 
Great  (and  the  Elder) ;  Slnd  Uilliam  Og,  or  the  Younger  William.  Some  genealogists 
state  that  the  second  wife  of  William  Fitzadelm  de  Burgo  was  a  daughter  of  Donal 
M6r  O'Brien  the  last  King  of  Thomond,  who  submitted  to  King  Henry  II.  of  England, 
A.D.  1172. 

It  may  be  here  observed  that  "  William"  is  Uilliam,  in  Gaelic  ;  and  "  William 
the  Younger"  is  Uilliam  Og.  As  time  rolled  on,  Uilliam  Og  was  contracted  to 
Uilleog,  anglicised  Ulick,  whic^  literally  means  "  Young  William."  It  is  also  right 
to  mention  that  the  name  "  Ulick"  was  special  to  the  Bourke  family. 

*  Ricard  Mor :  To  this  Ricard  De  Burgo,  King  Henry  III.,  of  England,  made  a 
grant  of  the  province  of  Connaught,  a.d,  1225;  in  1227  he  was  appointed  "lord 
justice  of  Ireland"  and  "  lord  of  Connaught."  This  last  title  he  acquired,  some  say, 
in  right  of  his  mother,  Una  (or  Agnes),  daughter  of  Hugh  O'Connor,  the  last  king  of 
Connaught  (by  Ranalt,  his  wife,  daughter  of  Awley  O'Farrell.  king  of  Conmacne). 
This  Ricard  M6r  had  two  sons — 1.  Walter,  who  became  earl  of  Ulster ;  2.  William, 
the  progenitor  of  the  Bourkes  of  Mayo,  and  after  whom,  some  say,' these  Bourkes 
took  the  name  of  "  MacWilliam  iachtar  ;"  "iachtar"  meaning  lower  or  northern,  com- 
pared to  "  MacWilliam  uachtar,"  which  meant  th&  upper  (or  Galway)  MacWilliant 
(see  Hardiman's  Jar  Connaeht,  page  39).

In  Camden's  Britannia,  page  462,  we  find  that  the  family  of  "  Fitzwalter," 
alias  "Botelere,"  alias  Butler,  derive  their  pedigree  from  the  dukes  of 
Normandy ;  as  follows  : 

1.  Hollo,  of  Norway,  first  duke 
of  Normandy.* 

2.  William  Longespee  :  his  son  ; 
the  second  duke. 

3.  Eichard  (1),  the  third  duke  . 
his  son  ;  d.  A.D.  986.  This  Eichard 
left  two  sons — 1.  Eichard  ;  2.  God-

the  Norman  line. 

7.  Henry  the  First :  his  son  ;  the 
second  King  of  England,  of  this  line. 

8.  King  Henry  the  Second  of 
England  :  his  son.  Etc.  See  p.  38, 
Vol.  I. 

Godfrey,  the  consul,  earl  of  Bryomy, 
second  son  of  Richard  (1),  the  third 
duke  of  Normandy  (who  is  No.  3  on 
this  list),  w-as  the  ancestor  of  De 
Clare  (now  Clare);  and  of  Butler, 
in  England  and  Ireland. 

Gilsebert  the  Norman,  earl  of  Eu, 
came  into  England  with  William 
the  Conqueror ;  and  had  four  sons  : 
— 1.  Gilsebert  de  Clare,  earl  of 
Clare,  who  was  the  ancestor  of 
Eichard  Strongbow,  earl  of  Pem- 
broke, who  m.  Eva,  dau.  of  Dermod 
MacMorough,  king  of  Leinster;  2. 
Roger ;  3.  Walter  ;  and  4.  Robert, 

who  was  ancestor  of  Fitzwalter  and 

Harvey  Walter,  who  was  lineally 
descended  from  the  said  Robert, 
here  last  mentioned,  married  a  dau. 
of  Gilbert  Becket  (and  a  sister  of 
Thomas  a  Becket,  the  "  Martyr," 
who  was  lord  archbishop  of  Canter- 
bury), and  by  her  had  issue — 1. 
Theobald  Walter,  who,  with  all  his 
family,  was  banished  out  of  Eng- 
land, on  account  of  the  disfavour  ia 
which  Thomas  a  Becket,  archbishop 
of  Canterbury,  thea  stood  with 
King  Henry  the  Second.  But  soon 
after  the  murder  of  the  said  arch- 
bishop, and  theking's  public  penance 
for  having  been  accessory  to  his 
death,  Henry  the  Second  recalled 
from  banishment  all  the  arch- 
bishop's friends  and  relatives,  and 
promoted  them  to  great  ofiices  and 
employments,  particularly  Theo- 
bald, son  of  the  said  Harvey  Walter, 
for  a  time  called  "Theobald  Walter," 
until  the  king  took  him  into  favour, 
and  sent  him  into  Ireland  with  the 
title  of  "Chief  Boteler"  of  that 
kingdom;  where  by  the  king's 
royal  bounty,  his  own  prowess,  and 
valiant  behaviour,  he  became  very 
eminent,  and  attained  great  and 
large  possessions. 

Some  antiquaries  are  of  opinion 
that,  from  his  office  of  "  chief 
boteler"  or  "  chief  butler"  of  Ire- 
land, this  Theobald  Walter's  pos-

terity  took  the  sirname  of  Butler  ; 
but  others  hold  that  the  name  is 
derived  from  Robert  (supposed  to 
be  "  butler"  to  King  William  the 
Conqueror),  who,  in  "Doomsday 
Book,"  is  called  Robertus  Piucerna. 
This  Robert  Pincerna,  with  two 
others  of  the  same  nai;iie  (whether 
his  brothers  or  sons,  we  know  not), 
called  Hugo  Pincerna,  and  Richard 
Pincerna,  held,  each  of  them  from 
the  King,  several  towns  in  Eng- 
land :  one  of  those  three  persons 
was  grandfather  of  the  above  men- 
tioned Walter.

families  who  came  into  Ireland  with 
the  "Conquest,"  and  remained 
here  ever  since,  give  only  the

with  his  Regiment  at  the  Siege  of  Derry,  during  which  he  had  promised  some  friends, 
"to  top  the  wall  of  the  besieged  defense," — a  rather  strange  promise  from  an  officer 
of  Horse.  He,  however,  kept  his  word,  and  was  on  the  4th  June  taken  prisoner  on 
the  Walls  of  Derry.  He  was  one  of  those  important  prisoners  threatened  with  the 
gallows  by  thf  Derrymen,  if  the  unarmed  Protestants  who  were  driven  under  the  Walls 
of  Derry  by  De  Rosen  and  refused  admittance  by  the  besieged,  were  not  allowed  by 
the  besiegers  to  leave.  He  succeeiled  his  father  as  sixth  Viscount  Mountgarret,  and 
died  25th  July,  1735.  He  married,  first,  a  dau.  of  Mr.  Buchannan,  of  Londonderry,  by

This  ancient  and  knightly  family  may  be  traced  in  the  male  line  to  the 
early  part  of  the  11th  century;  and,  on  the  "spindle"  side  (through the 
Curwens),  to  the  Scoto-Pictish  and  West-Saxon  Kings.  It  derived  its 
sirrame  from  the  Lordship  of  Cliburne,  in  Westmoreland,  but  the  early 
descent  of  the  manor  is  involved  in  obscurity,  owing  to  the  distinction  of 
northern  records  in  the  border  wars  and  feuds  of  the  12th  and  13th 
centuries.  The  first  record  of  the  name  appears  in  the  Domesday  or  Great 
Survey  of  England,  A.D.  1086,  Vol.  L,  p.  234.  See  Jackson's  "  Curwens 
of  Wm-kinglon  Hall;  Symon  of  Durham;  and  Freeman's  Norman  Conq., 
IV.,  89. 

Cliborne  is  pronounced  "  Clebburn."  The  name  is  spelled  in  over  thirty 
different  ways,  and  is  often  confounded  with  Glyborne,  Clabon,  Claybough, 
Clayburgh,  Giberne,  Caborne,  and  other  entirely  distinct  families  of  diverse 

The  word  Cliborne  is  derived  from  the  Anglo-Saxon  "  claeg,"  stichj  earth, 
and  "^borne,"  a  stream.  Danish  "  Klaeg,"  clammy  or  sticky  mud.  Ferguson 
derives  it  from  A.S.  "  clif,"  a  hill,  and  "burne,"  a  stream.  And  Picton, 
from  Norse  or  Danish  "  Klif-brunnr,"  the  Cliffstream  (compare  "  Klifs- 
dabr/'  Clifdale).  In  the  time  of  Edward  the  Confessor  Cliburn  contained 
but  ten  carucates  or  1200  acres.  At  the  Survey  there  were  1440  acres  ; 
and  by  modern  measurement  it  embraces  1360  acres,  or  ten  miles  in 
circumference.  It  is  situated  on  an  eminence  on  the  Leith  rivulet,  about 
six  miles  from  P6nrith,and  is  bounded,  E.S.W.  by  the  Parish  of  Morland, 
and  North  by  Louther,  Clifton  and  Bingham. 

Ptidpath  and  others  state  that  the  greatest  part  of  Carlisle  perished, 
and  the  records  of  the  North  suffered  by  fire  in  1173;  and  again  in  1292 
when  the  principal  records  and  charters  of  the  North  were  destroyed. 

As  no  Survey  was  made  of  Cumbria  (which  included  Cumberland  and 
Westmoreland),  Cliborne  was  entered  among  the  Leicestershire  manors  of 
Kobert  de  Vesci,  who  may  have  received  it  as  a  gift  from  the  Conqueror 
after  his  second  conquest  of  the  Northerner  he  may  have  inherited  it 
amo-ng  the  lands  of  the  Saxon  Ethelrid  (Domesday,  p.  377.)  Nicholson, 
the  Historian  of  Westmoreland,  says :  "  The  manor*  of  Cliburn  was  early 
divided  into  two  moieties,  Cliburn-Tailbois,  and  Cleburn-Hervey ;  the  first 
derived  its  name  from  the  owners,  a  branch  of  the  Tailbois,  Barons  of 
Kendal;  Cliburn-Hervey  in  like  manner;  but  it  had  gone  out  of  that 
name  before  the  commencement  of  any  of  our  accounts"  (a.d.  1370).  Vol. 
L,  p.  457. 

*  Manor  :  Single  manors  in  one  county  were  frequently  entered  in  the  Domesday 
(for  convenience)  under  other  shires  ;  as,  for  instance,  Torhilmenstone  in  Gloucester- 
shire is  entered  under  Hertfordshire  ;  Lapley,  in  Northamptonshire,  under  Essex.

Though  the  antecessors  of  Hervey  in  Cliborne  are  'not  known, 
"  Cleborne,"  as  a  man's  name  occurs  as  a  donor  of  houses  in  York  to  the 
Priory  of  Nastel,  A.D.  1120  (Burton's  MonasL  Ehor.  p..  309),  and  "Clibu 
fits  ^Istani"  appears  in  a  charter  of  Bishop  Galfira,  A.D.  1133-40.  (Surtees 
'Eist.  Durham,  III.,  149.)  The  founder  of  the  present  family  was  un- 
doubtedly a  Norman  or  Breton  Hervey,  after  whom  a  moiety  of.  Cliburn 
was  named ;  but  whether  this  Herveos  was  a  cadet  of  the  great  feudal 
Baron  of  Vesci,  as  Sedge  wick  implies  (Appleby  AfSS.),  or  of  the"  equally 
powerful  house  of  Acarius  of  Ravensworth,  is  not  clearly  shown.  (Senhouse 
Somerville  MSS.) 

Both  families,  held  land  in  the  immediate  vicinity  of  Englewood ;  in 
both,  the  Christian  names  of  Hervey,  Geoffrey,  Robert  and  William  appear, 
but  the  arms  of  Cleburne  are  clearly  Fitzhugh ;  and  Ravensworth,  the 
chief  seat  of  that  family,  is  within  twenty  miles  of  Cleburn. 

The  Vescies  held  in  Englewood  and  Camerton  till  late  in  the  12th 
century.  They  were  patrons  of  Franceys  of  Warnel-Bauk,  a  branch  of  the 
Franceys  of  Cliburne,  a  family  of  some  note  there ;  and  it  is  a  singular 
coincidence  that  Robert  de  Vesci  should  hold  Cliburne  in  1083,  and  that 
a  descendant,  Hervey  de  Vesci  (thought  by  some  to  have  been  lord  of  that 
manor  in  the  12th  century)  should  pay  a  fine  for  marrying  the  widow  of 
Sweyn  FitzAlric  in  1130  {Pipe  Roll,  31  Hen.  I.),  and  not  again  appear  as 
"De  Vesci"  in  the  records  of  Cumberland  or  Westmoreland. 

Watson  Holland  (Somerville  MSS.)  says  :  "  A  moiety  of  Cleburn  came 
to  Hervey  in  marriage  through  the  Viponts,  who  in  turn  derived  it  from 
the  hereditary  Forresters  of  Eaglewood."  This  is  a  more  reasonable  con- 
jecture than  to  suppose  that  in  the  time  of  Henry  I.  "  Rmulph  Meschin 
gave  it  with  Graystock  and  other  lands  to  the  ancestors  of  Walter  Fitz 
Ivo,  whose  grand-daughter  Alice  married  Henry  Fitz  Hervey  of  Ravens- 
wath,  and  having  brought  him  large  possessions  in  the  north,  that  he 
enfeoffed  Alan  of  Cleburn."  This  Walter  Fitz  Ivo  was  probably  a 
Tailbois,  wha  Hodgson  thinks  was  the  immediate  progenitor  of  the 
"Greystocks;"  and  it  is  certain  that  Cleburti-Tailbois  and  Yanwith  were 
possessed  by  members  of  the  Tailbois  family  holding  under  the  Viponts 
and  Cliffords  in  the  13th  century.  (Chart.  Nuominstor,  Fetherstone 
Castle.)  In  the  Vetinpont  inlierltarum  partUiouSiu,  A.D.  1267,  the  "homage 
of  Lucas  Tailbois  was  assigned  to  Idonea  de  Vertenponto  for  Cleburn 
Tailbois"  (14  Edw.  I,  1286,  Hist.  West.  I.,  457.)  And  by  an  Inquisition 
held  8  Edw.  II.  (1315)  "Lucas  Tailbois  held  of  Robert  de  Clifford,  one 
moiety  of  Cliburn,  the  Wardship  valued  at  £13  6s.  8d.,  and  Cornage  at 
12s.  A^di."  In  farther  proof  of  tradition  we  now  know  that  Lucy,  sole 
daughter  and  heir  of  Ivo  Tailbois  and  the  Countess  Lucy,  married  for  her 
second  husband  Ranulph  Meschin  (first  Earl  of  Chester  of  that  family), 
whose  daughter  married  Robert  d'Estrivers,  forester  of  Ea9;lewood.  His 
daughter  Ibria  married  Ranulph  Engayne,  who^e  son  William  married 
Eustachia  and  had  an  only  daughter  and  heir.  Ada  Engayne,  married  to

Hen.  IT.  This  Sir  Hugh's  sister  Maud  de  Morville  married  William  de 
Vetinponte  (N.  and  B.  Hist.  Westd.,  p.  266),  and  had  by  her  "Maud's 
Meaburn"  (Taylor's  Ealls  of  Wesid.,  p.  259),  which  he^ave  to  one  of  the 
gmily  of  Franceys*  of  CHburn.  The  other  half  of  Meaburn—"  Meaburn 
Begis,"  belonging  to  Sir  Hugh  de  Morville,  was  seized  with  all  his  other 
lands  and  possessions  into  the  King's  hands,  for  his  complicity  in  Becket's 
murder  (31st  Dec,  1170),  and  his  forfeited  estates  were  granted  to  Eobert 
de  Vetinponte,  who  may  have  enfeoffed  Alan  Fitz  Hervey  with  that 
moiely  of  the  manor  known  as  "  Cliburn  Hervey." 

The  manor  must  have  been  exchanged  at  a  very  early  period  with 
the  Barons  of  Kendal  (who  owned  nearly  all  the  "Bottom  of  West- 
moreland," including  Baiton  Louther  and  Morland)  or  with  the  Chester 
Earls  j  for  Eanulph  le  Meschin,  who  married  Lucy,  the  daughter  and 
heiress  of  Ivo  de  Tailbois,  1st  Baron  of  Kendal,- granted  the  Barony  of 
Coupland  to  his  brother  Wilham  Meschines,  who  divided  his  lai>ds 
among  his  kinsmen  and  followers.  "To  Waltheof  Fitz  Cospatric,  he 
gave  the  manors  of  Clifton,  Little  Clifton,  and  Bingham,  and  to 
Ketel  son  of  Eldred,  Morland  and  Woikington.  (Denton  MS.)  Kethel 
gave  the  church  of  Morland  to  the  Abbey  of  St.  Mary's  at  York,  and  left 
Workington  to  his  second  son  Oirce,  and  Morland  and  Grayrigg  to  his  son 
and  heir  Gilbert,  second  Baron  of  Kendal,  whose  son  William  Tailbois  (de 
Lancaster)  gave  these  manors  by  a  charter  In  iibervm  maritaglum  together 
with  Agnes  his  daughter,  to  Alexander  or  William  de  Windsor."  (Collins's 
Feeiage.)  Panulph  retained  lor  himself  the  Forest  of  Englewood,  and 
probably  the  adjacent  manor  of  Cliburne,  came  to  his  daughter,  w'ho  mar- 
ried Bobert  d'Estinor  (Hereditary  Forester  of  Englewood),  from  whom  the 
Moivilles  inherited.  How  Clifton,  Bingham,  and  Little  Clilton,  passed 
from  Waltheof  to  the  Morville's,  does  not  aj-pear ;  but  it  is  certain  that 
Sir  Hugh  de  MorAille  gave  Cliburn-Clifton  to  Gilbert  Engayne,  kmp.

The  iorleited  estates  o]  Sir  Hugh  were  granted  by  King  John  (1199-1216) 
to  his  councillor  Robert  de  Vetinpont,  upon  whose  decease  {Clans.  51, 
Hen.  HI.,  1267)  they  were  divided  between  his  two  daughters:  Cliburn 
passing  to  Idonea  (wife  of  Roger  de  Leyburne),  who  at  her  death  (8  Edw, 
HL,  1335)  left  it  with  all  her  other  lands  in  Westmoreland  to  her  great; 
nephew  Robert  de  Clifford ;  while  in  the  hands  of  the  Crown  (Hen.  II. 
8Ld  John, 1175-1216)Cliburn  may  have  been  granted  to  Alan,  son  of  Henry 
of  Rayen^worth,  by  the  King,  or  he  may  have  been  enfeofifed  by  the  de 
Morville  (who  gave  Clibburn-Clifton  to  Engayne)  te/ore  his  lands  passed  to

descendants  held  the  manor  of  Cliburn-Hervey,  by  "  Knight  service  of 
the  Crown"  (Collins's  Peerage,  p.  426)  and  by  "  cornage"  only,  of  the 
Viponts  and  Cliffords.  {Escheats,  8  Edw.  II.,  Hi&t.  West.  I.  277.) 

The  church  of  Cliburn  is  a  quaint  Norman  structure,  situated  within  a 
stone's  throw  of  the  Hall.  It  is  mentioned  by  Grose,  "among  the  antiqui- 
ties worthy  of  notice  in  Westmoreland."  (Antiq.  Eng.  and  Wales,  vi.,  22.) 
It  was  dedicated  to  St.  Cuthbert  of  Lindisfarne,  and  marks  one  of  the 
resting  places  of  the  Saint's  body  in  its  flight  from  Holy  Island  to  escape 
the  Danes,  a.d.  873.  There  is  no  mention  of  the  church  in  Domesday,  but 
its  omission  "  is  no  evidence,  or  by  no  means  proof  that  one  was  not  iu 
existence  when  the  survey  was  compiled."  {Notes  and  Queries,  26  S.  VII.,  139.) 
The  present  structure  was  probably  built  by  Orme  or  a  Earon  of  Kendal 
in  the  early  part  of  the  11th  century,  and  was  granted  to  St.  Mary's,  at 
York.  It  was  confirmed  to  the  Abbot  and  Convent  of  St.  Mary's  in  1136, 
by  Adelulph,  1st  Bishop  of  Carlisle  (Hist.  JFest.  II.,  250-1),  and  its  Advow- 
son  was  granted  to  Sylvester,  Bishop  of  Carlisle  in  1284.  {Hist.  JFest.) 
Thanks  to  the  munificence  of  its  worthy  Rector  (the  Eev.  Clarke  Watkins, 
Burton,  J\J. A.)  the  old  church  is  in  excellent  preservation.  It  contains 
a  quaint  font  of  the  15th  century,  an  ancient  cross,  a  few  brasses,  and 
some  fine  stained  glass  in  the  east  and  south  windows.  In  the  chancel  is  a 
handsome  mural  tablet  to  the  memory  of  Sophia  Portia  Burton  (daughter 
of  Sir  William  Pilkington  of  York),  first  wife  of  the  present  Rector,  who 
died  on  the  9th  Sept.,  1861.  On  the  north  side  is  one  of  those  curious 
"Leper  windows,"  now  so  rare  in  England,  which  is  filled  with  painted 
glass  "  in  memory  of  Cuthbert  Louther  Cleborne."  All  the  original  monu- 
ments and  brasses  were  probably  destroyed  or  stolen,  during  the  civil  war, 
like  those  of  the  Clifiords  at  Skipton  ;  and  the  modern  ones  very  imperfectly 
replace  some  earlier  memorials  and  inscriptions,  removed,  lost,  or  destroyed 
in  former  church  requisites. 

Cliburn  Hall,  with  its  deer-park,  terraced  walks  and  pleasure  grounds, 
had  fallen  into  decay  before  the  end  of  the  last  century,  and  has  since 
undergone  many  changes  to  fit  it  for  the  purpose  of  a  modern  farm  house. 
Taylor  (Manorial  Halls  of  JFestmoreland,  p.  253)  says :  "  Since  the  traces  of 
foundation  walls  surrounding  the  Hall,  and  from  the  extensive  range  of 
buildings  that  are  attached  to  it,  this  must,  in  the  time  of  Richard 
Cleburne,  have  been  a  place  of  very  considerable  importance."  It  was  rebuilt 
in  1567,  by  the  said  Richard  (who  married  the  heiress  of  Kirkbride),  upon 
the  site  of  an  earlier  structure,  or  on  the  foundations  of  the  ancient  fortalice 
or  "  Pele  of  Cliburn,"  for  the  13th  century  donjon  or  keep  remains.  This 
massive  tower  contains  three  stories,  and  its  upper  part  "  carried  the  battle- 
mented  parapet  Avhich  was  removed  within  the  memory  of  the  present 
tenant,  when  the  new  roof  was  put  on."  (p.  254.)  And  again,  at  p.  252, 
he  says  :  "  With  the  successor  of  Thomas  Cleburn  ended  the  race  of  Cle- 
burn  at  Cliburn,  and  the  Hall  manor  passed  to  the  family  of  Louther. 
One  of  the  sons  went  over  to  Ireland  and  founded  the  important  family  of 
the  Cleburns  of  Ballycollaton  in  Tipperary.  In  the  ancient  church 
of  Kilbarron  there  is  a  memorial  flagstone  to  this  William  Cleburn 
of  Ballycollaton,  second  son  of  Thomas,  ob.  1684."  The  descendants  of 
this   family    are   still   benefactors  of    the  Church  of   Cleburn,    but  the

Commencing  ^vith  Bardolph,  the  common  progenitor  of  several  noble 
families  of  the  north,  the  descent  is  as  follows  : — 

1.  Bard olph,t Lord  of  Eavenswath 
and  other  manors  in  Eichmond- 
shire,  was  a  great  landowner  in 
Yorkshire,  who  gave  a  carucate  of 
land  and  the  churches  of  Patrick 
Brampton  and  Eavenswath  in  pure 
alms  to  the  Abbey  of  St.  ]\Iary's  at 
York.  In  his  old  age,  when  weary 
of  the  world  and  its  trouble,  he  be- 
came a  monk,  and  retired  to  the 
Abbey,  of  which  he  had  been  a 
benefactor.  (See  Dugdale's  and 
Burke's  Extinct  Peerage.)  He  was 
succeeded  by  his  son  and  heir — 

2.  Akaris,  or  Acarius  FitzBar- 
dolph,  who  founded  the  Abbey  of 
Fors  (5  Stephen,  A.D.  1140)  and 
granted  the  original  site  of  Jervaulx 
to  the  Suvignian  monks  at  York. 
He  also  gave  a  charter  to  the  Priory 
of  St.  Andrews,  and  lands  and 
tenths  in  Rafenswad  (Eavenswath), 
to  which  gifts. — "  Hen.  fit.  Hervei, 
and  Conan  d'Ask"  were  witnesses. 
{Marrig.  Charters,  Coll.  Top.  Et. 
Genealogy,  HI.,  114.)  He  died,  A.D. 
1161,  leaving  two  sons  : 

I.  Herveus,  of  whom  presently. 

II.  AValter. 

3.  Hervey  FitzAkaris  (A.D.  1165, 
ob.  1182),  "a  noble  and  good 
knight,"  who  consented  that  Conan, 
Earl  of  Eichmond,  should  translate 
the  abbey  of  charity  to  East  Wilton, 
and  place  it  on  the  banks  of  the 
river  Jore,  from  which  it  was  called 
Jorevaulx.  He  was  a  witness  with 
his  brother  Walter  to  a  charter  of 
ConanlV.,Duke  of  Brittany  and  Earl 
ofEichmond(ll  Hen. II., A.D.  1165); 
and  about  the  same  time  he  "gave 
his  9th  sheaf  of  corn  which  grew 
on  his  lands  in  Askew,  Brompton, 
Lemingford,  and  Eavenswet  to  the 
Priory  of  jNIaryke  in  the  Deanery  of 
Eichmond."  (Burton  Monast.  Ebor., 
p.  357.)  He  died,  A.D.  1182,  leav- 
ing three  sons  : 

I.  Henry  FitzHervey  (ob.  1201), 
who  mar.  Alice,  daughter  of 
Randolph  FitzWalter  de  Grey- 
£tocke(ob.  12  John  1211),  from 
whom  descended  the  Barons 
FitzHugh.  He  witnessed  a 
charter  of  Duke  Conan,  in 
1165,  one  of  Conan  de  Asch,  in 
1196  ;  and  was  a  witness  with 
liis  brother  Alan,  to  the  charters 

*Jiace:  "Nobiles,"  says  Coke,  " sunt  qui  arma antecessorum  suorum proferre  possunt," 
"  Princes  or  lords  rsay  flourish  or  may  fade, 
A  breath  can  make  them,  as  a  breatli  has  made." 
So  Littr^  defines  a  noble  as  less  than  a  gentleman  :  "  Tout  gcntilhomme  est  noble, 
maistout  noble  n'cst  pas  gentilhomme  ;  le  prince  fait  dcs  nobles,  mais  le  sang  fait  desgentil- 
Jiommes." — DiCT.  DE  l'Acad. 

f  Bardolph  :  Harrison  (see  the  Sistory  of  Yorkshire')  deduces  Bardolph  and  his 
brother  Bodin  from  Thorfin,  fil.  Cospatric  de  Eavenswet  et  Dallon  in  Yorkshire,  temp. 
Canute ;  while  Watson  makes  Bardolph  the  son-in-law,  and  not  the  son  of  Thorfin. 
Bardolph  is  "  said  to  be  of  the  family  of  the  Earls  of  Richmond." — See  Gale's  Honoris 
de  Richmond  ;  and  Whittaker's  Richmondshire.  Burke  acknowledges  tbat  "  the  earlier 
generations  of  the  Earls  of  Eichmond  are  very  conflicting."  The  families  of  Crawford, 
L'Estrange,  and  FitzAllan  of  Bedale,  also  derive  from  them  Bretin  Earls ;  and  the 
FitzHughs,  Askews,  and  others,  from  Bardolph.  Whittaker  says :  Askew,  Lincoln- 
shire, was  granted  after  1086  by  Alan,  Earl  of  Richmond,  to  Bardolph,  his  brother, 
father  of  Askaris,  ancestor  of  the  Barons  FitzHugh  of  Eavensworth.  Henry  FitzAskew 
granted  tithes  of  Askew  to  Marrig.  (Burton  Monast.  Ebor.  269.)  Randolph  Fitz- 
Henry  had  Henry  and  Adam,  between  whom  Askew  was  divided.  Adam  assumed  the 
name  of  Askew," — Hist.  Richmond  ;  and  The  Norman  People,  144.

4.  Alan,  dictus  "  Cleburne"  {Le

of  Hervey  FitzAkaris,  son  of  Bar- 
dolph,  "  was  a  witness  with  his  bro-

of  Kirby  Sleeth  (c.  119G),  and

Abbey  of  Holm  Cultram,  for  main- 
tenance of  infirm  poor"  (N.  and  B. 
Hist.  West.  I.,  172-89;  Hutch.  Hist. 
Climb.  II.,  331),  are  probably  iden- 
tical with  Richard  the  second  son  of 
this  Hervey.  Alan,  the  third  and 
youngest  son  received  {temp.  John,) 
a  moiety  of  the  manor  of  Cliburn, 
CO.  Westmoreland  ;  and  a  fine  was 
paid  for  the  alienation  of  lands  there 
in  1215  :  "Fin.  16  Joan.  m.  d.  de 
Terras  in  Cleburn,"  S.  V.  Lanercost. 
(See  Tanner's  Notifia,  Hutchinson's 
Hist.  Cumh.,  I.,  58.)  This  manor 
gave  to  Alan  FitzHcrvey  "  a  local 
habitation  and  a  name,"  but  "  when 
a  man  takes  his  surname  from  his 
possessions  or  residences,  it  is  very 
hard  to  say  at  which  particular 
point,  the  personal  designation 
passes  into  the  hereditary  surname." 
(Freeman  Norm.  Conq.,  V.,  379.) 
Prior  to  the  Domesday,  and  for  nearly 
two  centuries  after,  there  were  no 

fixed  surnames  :  the  eldest  son  took 
the  Christian  name  of  the  father, 
while  theyoungest  assumed  thename 
of  his  own  manor ;  hence  "  Alan" 
is  found  in  the  charters*  of  that 
period,  although  the  surname  must 
also  have  been  used,  for  Palgrave 
states  that  "Idonea,  daughter  of 
Allen  Clibburne,  married  Walter, 
the  fourth  son  of  William  Tankard, 
the  Steward  of  Knaresborough,  and 
had  issue  George  Tankard,  who 
died  Sine  j^^'ole,  temp.  Henry  III.,

5.  Hervey  (In  Bas-Breton, 
"Hferve"  or  "Hoerve,"  from  Old 
Germ.  "  Hervey,"  means  strong  in 
tear)  held  lands  and  tenements  in 
Ciiburne,  Clifton,  and  Milkanthorpe, 
by  knight  service,  tempore,  Hen.  HI., 
and  Ed w.  I.  (1216-72). 

There  was  also  a  Roland  Fitz-

Alice  de  Lexington,  and  held  "  Sut-

7.  Sir  Robert,*  lord  of  the  -manor 
of  Cliburn-Hervey,  was  a  person  of 
some  distinction,  temp.  Edw.  III., 
and  was  knighfc  of  the  Shire  of 
Westmoreland,  7  and  10  Rich.  If., 
1384-7.  {Hi^t.  West.,  App.  I.,  459.) 
In  1336  (9  Edw.  III.),  he  was  "a 
witness  with  Sir  Hugh  de  Louther 
to  settlement  by  Sir  Walter  Strick- 
land, of  the  manor  of  Hackthorp, 
upon  his  sons,  Thomas,  John,  and 
Kalf  Strickland."  {Hist.  JFest.  II., 92.) 
In  1356  "he  held  lands  in  Ireland," 
but  he  apparently  made  no  settle- 
ment there.  In  right  of  his  wife  Mar- 
garet, he  held  the  lands  and  was  lord 
of  the  manors  of  Bampton  of  Cun- 
dale,  Bampton  Patryke  and  Knipe 
Patric,  in  Westmoreland.  (Inq.  Post 
Mart.,  43  Edw.  HI.;  15  Rich.  II., 

He  married  Margaret,  daughter 
and  co-heir  of  Henry  de  Cundalef 
and  Kyne  (one  of  the  Drengi  of 
Westmoreland),  who  held  their 
lands  before  the  Conquest,  and  were 
permitted  to  retain  them.  This 
Henry  de  Cundale  was  in  descent 
from  that  Henry,  lord  of  Cundale, 
who,  temp.  Hen.  II.  (1154),  among 
other  principal  men  of  note,  was  a 
witness  to  a  compromise  between 
the  Abbot  of  Byland  concerning 
manor  of  Bleaton,  and  in  13  John 

(1212)  was  a  witness  to  a  grant  of 
Robert  de  Vipont  to  Shapp  Abbey  ; 
and  who  in  1201  {Ohlata  Roll,  2  John) 
made  a  fine  with  the  king  not  to  go 
with  him  to  Normandy.  Sir  Robert 
had  issue  one  son,  John,  who,  dying 
at  an  early  age,  was  succeeded  by 
his  second  son,  John  de  Clybourne. 

8.  John   de    Cleburne  (who  died 
vita  2^1  tr is),  left  two  sons: 

I.  Roland. 

II.  John. 

His  widow,  Margaret  (who  married 
for  her  second  husband  John  de 
Wathecoppe  of  Warcupp),  "  held 
the  manor  of  Cliburn-Hervey  for 
Rowland,  son  and  heir  of  the  said 
John  Cleburne  and  Margaret."  {Inq. 
P.  31.,  15  Rich.  II.,  1392;  Hist. 
TFest.,  I.,  459.)  Rowland  dying 
young,  his  lands  passed  to  his  bro- 
ther John. 

9.  John,  second  son  of  John  de 
Clyborne  and  Margaret  his  wife,  held 
Cliburn-Hervy  in  1422,  9  Hen.  V. :

de  Cleburn-Hervy,  xvi.  s.  ix*^.  {Heiii. 
MS.  628,  fF.  228  b.)  In  1423,  he^ 
was  lord  of  the  manors  of  Cliburn- 
Hervey  and  Cliburn-Tailbois  (the 
two  moieties  having  been  united 
after  the  death  of  John,  only  son 
and  heir  of  Robert  de  Franceys  of 
Cleburne,  vho  married  Elizabeth, 
daughter  and  heir  of  the  last  Walter

*  Sir  Eoiert :  The  knighthood  of  the  age  of  chivalry  was  a  very  different  honour

f  Cundale  :  Eampton  Hall  {temp.  Hen.  IIL,  121C-72)  was  the  seat  of  Henry  de 
Cundale  (name  derived  from  "Cundale,"  in  York),  a  family  of  great  consideration, 
who  continued  here  till  Edw.  II.  (1307-27)  when  their  property  went  to  the  Cleburns. 

Thornthwaite  Hall  was  the  mansion  house  of  Bampton  Patric,  called  after  Patric 
de  Culwen,  temp.  Hen.  II.,  1154. 

"  Half  de  Cundale  was  fined  40  marks." — Fines  in  JExclicquer,  22  Hen.  II.,  1176.

son  and  heir  : 

10.  Eow'land,  son  and  heir  of  John 
de  Clebuin,  was  "lord  of  the  manors 
of  Cliburn-Heivey  and  Tailbois,  and 
held  EamptonCundale  and  Knipe, 
by  homage,  feally,  and  coinage." 
{Ir,q.  r.  M.  31,  Hen.  VI.,  1453.)  He 
is  scarcely  mentioned  in  the  local 
records,  though  he  was  probably 
■with  Clifford  at  Towton  on  that 
fatal  Palm  Sunday,  24th  March, 
1461.  He  was  just  and  considerate 
of  his  tenants,  remitted  their  "  gres- 
sums;"  and  by  him  the  last  of  his 
"  Villeins  in  gross"  was  sold  free. 
In  1456  he  was  appointed  "one  of 
the  jurois  upon  the  Icquisition, 
after  the  death  of  Thomas  Lord 
Chfford"  (34  Hen..VI. ;  Ei&L  West, 
I.,  459),  and  also  "held  the  same 
tvhich  heretofore,  as  the  Inquisition 
set  forth,  were  held  by  Ealph  de 
Cundale."  {Hht.  TFcd.,  I.,  466-7.) 
He  was  succeedecl  by  his  son  and 

11.  John,  sen  of  Eowland  Cle- 
burne, married  Elizabeth,  daughter 
of  Sir  Thos.  Curwen  of  Workington 
Hall.  This  was  considered  a  great 
alliance,  for  Elizabeth's  blood  was 
"  darkly,  deeply,  beautifully  blue  :"

(from  injuries  received  in  a  skirmish 
at  Kirtlemore,  on  St.  Magdalen's 
day,  22nd  July,  1484,)  on  the  8th 
Aug.,  1489  {Inq.  P.  M.,  4  Hen.  VII),

19  Hen.  VII.  (1504)  it  was  found 
that  "John  Clyborne,  his  father, 
ditd  8th  August,  1489,  and  that 
Thomas  Clyborne,  his  son  and  heir 
was  then  22  years  of  age."  {Hist. 
West.,  I.,  467.)  He  held  his  manor 
of  Bampton,  of  Henry  Lord  Clifford, 
by  homage,  fealty,  and  scutage  {Inq. 
Post.  Mort.,  18  Hen.  VIIL,  1527),

of  his  dues  on  this  manor,  due  the 
Diocese  of  Carlisle,  5  Hen.  VIIL 
{Valor  Ecdesiastims,  p.  294).  He 
neglected  his  estate,  engaged  in 
many  visionary  schemes,  and  be- 
came so  wild,  reckless,  and  extra- 
vagant, that  in  Nov.,  1512,  "he 
with  Henry  Lord  Clifford  and 
others,  were  proceeded  against  for 
debts  due  by  them  to  the  king," 
{Letters  and  Papers,  Hen.  VIIL,  Vol.

much  part  in  county  affairs.  In

chosen  "  an  arbitrator  in  a  case

upon  by  the  Warden  of  the  West

retainers  "  six  horse  and  ten  foot 
soldiers  for  service  on  the  Borders." 
(List  of  principal  Gentlemen  subject 
to  Border  Service — Hist.  West.,

daughter :

Killerby,  co.  York,  and  of  Cliburne, 
CO.  Westmoreland  :  son  and  heir  of 
Edmund;  was  a  proud,  imperious, 
passionate  man,  regarded  by  some 
as  an  "  intolerant  bigot."  Right 
royally  proud  he  well  might  be,  for 
through  his  great-great-grandmother 
Elizabeth  Curwen,  he  was  descended 
from  that  great  Cospatric  "  who 
sprang,"  says  Freeman,  "  from  the 
noblest  blood  of  Northumberland, 
and  even  of  the  kingly  blood  of 
Wessex."  {Norm.  Cong.  IV.,  89.) 

He  was  a  devoted  adherent  of  the 
Church  of  Rome,  spent  much  of  his 
early  life  in  travel ;  and  was  pro- 
bably engaged  in  some  secret  nego- 
ciations  with  the  French  Court,  as 
Lord  Gray  in  his  letter  to  the  Privy 
Council,  dated 7th  May,  1555, says: 
"Mr.  Clyburn  has  been  a  long  time 
in  France,  and  brings  important  in- 
formation." (State  Papers,  1553-8.) 
Though  warned  by  his  kinsman  Sir 
Henry  Curwen  (who  in  1568  re- 
ceived and  hospitably  entertained  his 
fifth  cousin,  the  unfortunate  Qaeen 
Mary,  when  she  arrived  at  Work- 
ington in  her  flight  from  Scotland,) 
to  "avoid  the  numerous  plots"  at 
this  period,  Cleburne  engaged  in 
the  scheme  to  release  the  Scottish 
Queen,  and  place  her  at  the  head 
of  the  "Rising  of  the  North." 
How  much  he  was  involved  in  this 
plot  will  never  be  known  ;  but  no 
doubt  he  and  the  Lowthers  were  "  up 
to  the  very  hilt  in  treason."  His 
brother  Thomas,  a  page  in  the  ser- 
vice of  his  kinsman.  Sir  Richard 
Lowther  (the  custodian  of  Mary), 
doubtless  kept  him  well  informed  of 
the  secret  machinations  of  the 
gentry  of  the  north,  and  he  was 
deep  in  the  counsels  of  the  shrewd 
and  long-headed  Gerard  Lowther, 
whom  he  concealed  at  Clibura 
when  pursed  by  the  Warden  of  the 
West  Marches.     Amon?  the  State

Papers  in  London  is  a  letter  from 
Eichard  Lowther,  dated  13th  Nov., 
1569,  addressed  to  the  Earl  of 
Westmoreland,  alluding  to  this  wily- 
Gerard,  and  indicating  how  deeply 
they  were  in  the  Plot.  "Appoint 
mo  one  day,"  he  says,  "  and  I  will 
meet  you  with  four  good  horses  either 
at  Derby,  Burton,  or  Tutburj^,  there 
to  perform  with  the  foremost  man, 
or  die.  To  the  futherance  thereof, 
Lord  Wharton  and  my  brother  will 
join."  On  the  14th  of  May,  the 
Earls  made  their  famous  entry  into 
Durham,  and,  on  the  23rd  of  the 
same  month,  Mary  was  removed 
further  South;  out  of  reach  of  the 
plotters.  On  the  28th  January 
following,  Sir  Francis  Leeke  wrote 
to  Cecil :  "  Before  receipt  of  yours 
for  apprehension  of  Gerard  Lowther 
and  Eichard  Clyburne  of  Clyburne, 
gentlemen,  we  had  examined  some 
of  their  servants,  John  Craggs  and 
Thomas  Clyburne  (who  had  come  to 
town  with  three  geldings  of  Low- 
ther), about  the  said  Gerard's 
movements;"  and  winds  up  by  saying 
"  I  send  this  letter  for  life,  that 
order  may  be  taken  for  Lowther  be- 
fore he  has  fled  far,  as  he  is  not  well 
horsed."  Amid  all  these  troubles, 
Eichard  Cleburne  was  engaged  in 
rebuilding  his  Hall  in  the  Tudor 
style.  Over  the  arched  doorAvay  he 
inserted  an  armorial  slab  with  a 
curious  rhyming  inscription  in  old 
English  characters,  now  so  weather 
worn  as  to  be  scarcely  decipherable.

On  each  side  of  this  Tudor  archway 
are  two  heater  shaped  shields  con- 
taining the  arms  of  Cleburne  and 
Kirkbride,  and  immediately  over 
the  inscription  a  quartered  shield : 
1st  and  4th,  arg.  3  chevronels  braced 
a  chief  sable  (for  Cleborne) ;  2nd 
and  3rd,  arg.  a  cross  engrailed  verb 
(for  Kirkbride).  The  extravagance 
entailed  by  the  re-building  of  the 
Hall  and  other  improvements  led  to 
the  mortgage  and  sale  of  Bampton- 
Cundale  (in  which  parish  is  the 
beautiful  Haweswater  Lake),  and  of 
other  fair  manors  which  sadly  im- 
poverished the  Cliburus. 

In  1571  he  was  again  mixed  np 
with  the  Lowthers  in  a  plot  in 
which  the  Duke  of  Norfolk  was  a 
principal;  and  in  which  he  lost  his 
head,  when  all  these  ambitious 
schemes  came  to  an  untimely  end. 
Full  of  intemperate  zeal  for  his 
religion,  he  continued  to  make  him- 
self obnoxious  to  Eokeby,  Walsino-- 
ham  and  Leicester,  "  who  thought  it 
pious  merit  to  betray  and  ensnare 
those  eminent  persons  who  were  not 
yet  quite  weaned  from  the  Church 
of  Rome."  {Hist.  Cunib.,  I.  387.)  By 
them  he  was  closely  watched  and 
persecuted,  and  was  several  times 
indicted  and  imprisoned  in  the 
"  Fleet."  Accused  by  Eokeby*  of 
being  a  "  Eecusant,"  and  of  being 
"  carried  away  with  blind  zeal  to 
favour  and  hold  Avith  the  Eomish 
Church"  {State  Paj^ers,  1581-90,  VoL 
clxxxiii.  207);  and  harrassed  by  his 
affairs,  his  health  gave  way,  and  in 
1577  he  was  obliged  to  spend  six 
months  at  Bath.  In  October,  1584, 
he  was  so  completely  broken  down 
that  Eokeby  declared  him  to  be 
"  aged,  infirm,  and  sickly,"  and 
again  "  he  had  permission  to  repair 
to  Bath,  where  he  remained  from

Berwick  and  Deputy  Warden  of  the 
Marches,  who  was  rewarded  by 
Henry  VIII.  with  a  grant  of  the 
Barony  of  Kendal,  called  the 
"Lumley  Fee."  This  Sir  Alan 
married  Dorothy,  dau.  of  Thomas 
Sandford,  of  Askam,  cousin  of  Anne, 
Countess  of  Pembroke  and  Dorset, 
through  whose  influence  with  her 
husband — a  prominent  member  of 
the  Virginia  Company  —  William 
Cleborne  was  made  Surveyor,  and 
Secretary  of  State  for  that  Colony, 
in.  1626.  Edmund  was  devoted  to 
the  pleasures  of  the  chase  and  passed 

most  o!  hig  tima  at  Killerby,  pre- 
ferring the  Yorkshire  dales  to  the 
cooler  breezes  of  Westmoreland. 
He  had  a  grant  from  the  Crown,  of 
the  Rectory  and  Parsonage  of  Bamp- 
ton,  Westmoreland,  and  also  had 
some  interest  in  the  Rectories  of 
Barton  and  Shelston.  There  seems 
to  have  been  some  trouble  about 
Bampton,  for  he  had  a  suit-at-law 
with  Sir  Rowland  Hunter  (clerk), 
defendant,  about  a  claim  on  that 
Rectory  which  had  been  granted  to 
Cleburne  by  letters  Patent.  (See

17.  Thomas,  eldest  son  of  Edmund 
of  Killerby,  born  1580,  died  16Dh 
Feb.,  1640,  was  the  14th  Lord  of 
the  manor  of  Clibum.  He  was  of 
an  indolent  nature  and  melancholy 
disposition,  shy,  silent,  and  reserved, 
and  by  no  means  fitted  to  deal  with 
the  stirring  events  of  the  time.  He 
found  his  estates  very  much  encum- 
bered and  himself  so  impoverished 
that  he  was  forced  to  mortgage  his 
lands,  and  to  borrow  money  from 
Sir  Timothy  Hutton,  of  Marske. 
He  was  (among  others)  assessed  for 
the  transplantation  of  the  Graemes 
or  Grahams  who  were  shipped  at 
Workington  for  Ireland.  (Hist.  TVesf. 
L,  cxviii.)  "  The  whole  sept  of  the 
Graemes,  under  their  chief  Walter 
the  gude  man  of  Netherby,  being 
troublesome  on  the  Scottish  border,  ^

were  transplanted  from  Cumberland 

to  Roscommon  ;  and  in  the  schedule 

to  the  articles  affecting  this  transfer, 

it  appears  that  the  Sept  consisted  of» 

124  persons,  dearly  all  bearing  the 

sirname   of    Graeme   or   Graham." 

{State  Papers,  Jas.  I.,  1603-6,  page 

654.)     This  restored   quiet   to  the 

Borders;  and  Thomas  lived  a  retired 

life   at   Cliburne  and  at  Killerby, 

cultivating  and  improving  his  lands. 

He  took  but  little  interest  in  affairs 

of  State,  and  lived  happily  with  his 

loving  wife  Frances,  daughter  of  Sir 

Eichard   Lowther,    the    Sheriff    of 

Cumberland  (to  whom^  in  1568,  was

18.  Edmund,  of  Killerby,  eldest

burne,   was    born    in    1605.      On 
"coming    of    a^e"    he   found   his 
estates  so  much  involved  that,  owing 
to  the  troublous  state  of  the  times, 
it  was  impossible  to  extricate  them. 
Like  his  father,  he  avoided  politics 
and  treasonable  schemes,  but  having 
spent  most  of  his  remaining  fortune 
iu   support   of  the   King,   he  was 
eventually  swept  into  the   vortex 
and  ruined. 

The  fair  lordships  of  Cliburne 
had  dwindled  away  one  by  one,  till 
the  owner  of  "  Killerby"  \yas  re- 
duced to  the  position  of  a  Yeoman 
or  Squire.  He  resided  at  Bampton.f. 
in  1663,  and  in  1665  was  one  of 
the  Governors  and  Trustees  of  the 
Bampton  Grammar  School ;  and  a 
B'eoffee  of  the  Free  School  and  Hos- 
pital of  Thesu,  at  Warton,  Lanca- 
shire. About  1625-6,  he  married

Edward  Cleburne  seems  to  have 
resided  at  Killerby  as  late  as  1630 ;

Bowes  (16th  January,  1630)  to  his 
*'  kinde  cozen  Matthew  Hutton, 
Esq.,  of  Marske,"  he  speaks  of

19. — Timothy  (eldest  son  and 
heir  of  Edmund  the  last  lord  of  the 
manor  of  Cleburne)  was  in  such 
straightened  circumstances  after  the 
Civil  War,  that,  to  quote  the  quaint ' 
language  of  Machell,  "  He  sold  the 
Hall  to  Mr.  Collingwood,  a  Bishop- 
rick  gentleman,  who  sold  it  to  Mr. 
Boger  Soray,  who  yet  lives  at 
Broughton-Tower,  in  Cumberland, 
who  exchanged  it  with  Mr.  Edward 
Lee,  of  Broughton,  for  Broughton- 
Tower.  Mr.  Lee  (c.  1664)  mort- 
gaged it  to  old  Sir  John  Lowther, 

whose  grand-child  now  enjoys  it." 
(Machell  MSS.,  HL  117.) 

After  the  sale  of  the  Hall  and 
Manor,  the  few  members  of  the 
family  that  remained  became  humble 
tillers  of  the  soil  their  fathers  had 
owned  as  lords :  thus  the  lov.^est 
and  the  highest  were  very  near 
together,  and  so  have  been  since  the 
world  began.  The  Wars  of  the 
Koses  and  the  great  Civil  War  had 
so  utterly  ruined  them  that,  like 
many  another  ancient  house,  scarcely 
one  of  its  members  emerged  from 
"  that  soothing  obscurity  which 
o'ershadows  the  country  Squire." 
Preferring  the  green  woods  with 
peace  and  mediocrity  to  vaulting 
ambition  or  the  gaieties  of  a  court, 
their  pride  was  that  of  Jiome  and 
peace,  expressed  in  the  French  dis- 
tich : 

"  Je  suis  ni  Due  ni  Prince  aussii 
Je  suis  le  Sire  de  Couci." 

Content  with  this  spirit  of  self- 
importance,  they  wrapped  them- 
selves up  in  a  a  mantle  of  exclusive- 
ness,  caring  so  little  for  politics  or 
the  interests  of  their  country,  that 
while  they  seldom  descended  to  the 
level  of  the  masses,  they  rarely  rose 
to  the  highest  positions  in  the  State, 
and  so  sank  into  merited  oblivion. 
Thus  ended  the  race  of  Cleburne  at 
Cliburne ! 

Timothy  Cleburne  retired  to 
"Yorkshire,  where  he  married  Mary, 
'fourth  daughter  of  John  Talbot,  of 
Thornton  le  Street,  Colonel  on  the 
part  of  Charles  I. ;  and,  failing  issue, 
the  representation  of  a  family  which 
had  flourished  for  six  hundred  years 
on  the  Border,  passed  to  his  cousin 
William  Cleburne,  of  Ballycullatan 
Castle,  in  Ireland,  whose  descendant 
in  the  sixth  generation,  William 
Cleburne,  Esq.,  of  Omaha  (eldest 
brother  of  the  late  General  Cle- 
burne) is  the  present  representative 
of  the  elder  branch  of  Cliburne.

also  held  lands  in  Ireland,  and  "  lost 
property  in  the  Rebellion  of  1640, 
to  the  extent  of  £977,  and  his 
church  living  worth  £186  a  year."

William,  of  St.  John's  Manor,  took 
an  active  part  in  relieving  the  suffer- 
ings of  the  ''  transplanted  Irish," 
and  in  1655,  specially  exerted  him- 
self in  behalf  of  Sir  Richard  Barn- 
well, the  Bellews,  and  Nettervilles, 
assisting  them  (as^  far  as  lay  in  his 
power)  in  extending  their  time,  and 
otherwise  diminishing  the  hardships 
of  them  and  other  distressed  Irish. 
In  1677,  he  purchased  from  Capt. 
Solomon  Cambie  "the  castles,  towns 
and  lands  of  BallycoUitan,  the 
villadge  and  lands  of  Bunnadubber 
and  of  Killinboy  or  Knock,  Bally- 
cuUatan ;  also  that  part  of  Annagh 
from  the  Castle  of  Annagh  to  the 
ditch  of  KilbuUoir,  together  with 
all  the  profits  and  emoluments  from 
the  said  castles,  towns,  villadges  and 
lands,"  as  by  a  Deed  enrolled  in  the 
Public  Record  O^ce,  Dublin,  dated 
20th  July,  1677.  This  William  was 
an  eccentric^  character,  full  of  quips 
and  cranks,  and  of  a  kindly  but 
contradictory  nature.  As — 
"  He  was  a  man  of  middle  age, 
lu  aspect  manly,  grave,  and  sage," 

he  soon  became  the  arbitrator  of 
all  the  rural  disputes  of  his  neigh- 
bourhood, and  the  friend  and  adviser 

*  William :  This  "William  lias  been  confounded  with  his  uncle  William,  wLo 
became  Secretary  in  the  Colony  of  Virginia,  in  1626,  and  who  in  1633-4,  agreed  to 
furnish  50  planters  to  Plowden'a  "  New  Albion  ;"  for  which  he  was  to  receive  "  5,000 
acres  and  a  manor  with  Royalties  in  America." — See  Art.  of  Agreement,  in  Public 
Eecord  Office,  Dublin,  21st  June,  1634. 

f  Lowther:  This  Sir  Gerard  (born  21st  Dec,  1561;  died  14th  Oct.,  1624,  and 
buried  at  Christ  Church,)  must  be  distinguished  from  the  unprincipled  Sir  Gerard 
Lowther  (a  natural  son  of  Sir  Christopher),  who  was  also  a  Judge  in  Ireland,  in  1628, 
and  who  died  and  was  buried  at  St.  Michan's,  Dublin,  10th  April,  1660.

just  such  an  oddity,  "  who  lived  like  a  hermit,  and  would  not  alloftr  a  woman  to  enter

of  the  poor — a  veritable  "  Squire 
Heldrum"  among  his  tenants.  At 
his  castle,  he  led  the  life  of  a  recluse, 
relieving  the  suffering  and  dis- 
tressed, and  dabbling  so  much  in 
Philosophy  and  Physic,  that  he 
obtained  the  sobriquet  of  "  Wise 
William,"  or  the  "Seer  of  Bally- 
collitan."  So  distinguished  was  he 
among  his  neighbours  for  good 
works,  justice,  and  unostentatious 
liberality,  that  he  escaped  the  en- 
mity of  the  Eapparees  and  country 
people,  "  who,"  says  Froude,  '-'hated 
the  English  settlers  at  this  period." 
(Ireland  in  the  18th  Century.)  About' 
1640,  he  married  "  Bridgetta  Warde 
of  the  City  of  Kilkenny,"  and,  dying 
in  1682  (Adrain.  granted  21st  Feb., 
1682.  Public  Record  Office,  Dub- 
lin), left  issue  two  sons  and  one 
daughter : 

I.  William,  of  Bally collitan-Castle, 
of  whom  presently. 

II.  Richard,  of  Bunadubber. 

III.  Mary,  who  married  Richard 
Allen,  and  had  issue  Step  en, 
and  others. 

Richard  (second  son  of  "Wise 
William"  of  Ballycullatan)  held  the 
lands  of  "  Bannadubber,"  and  re- 
ceived by  the  will  of  his  brother 
William  "two  parts  of  the  issues 
and  profitts  out  of  St.  John's 
Manor,  co.  Wexford,  with  £10  per 
annum  for  life  out  of  the  lands  of 
Ballycolliton,  my  red  stone  rings, 
ear-rings,  and  best  black  suits  of 
cloathes    and    perriwigs."       (Will 

proved  at  Dublin,  1684.)  He  was 
a  man  of  fine  personal  appearance, 
and  possessed  of  such  infinite  tact 
that  he  managed  to  steer  clear  of 
all  political  and  religious  factions, 
and  thus  was  enabled  to  preserve 
his  estate  :* 

"  lu  that  dark  time  of  cruel  wrong,  wlien 
on  our  country's  breast 
A  dreary  load,  a  ruthless  code,  with 
wasting  terrors  pressed." 

He  had  issue :

19.  William  of  Ballycollitan 
Castle,  eldest  son  of  "  William  the 
Wise,"  was  born  14th  September, 
1642,  died  22nd  October,  1684. 
(Will  proved,  5th  February,  1684-5, 
Pub.  Rec.  Off.  Dublin.)  Though  a 
firm  believer  in  the  "  Divine  right 
of  Kings,"  he  married  the  daughter 
of  a  Cromwellian  officer, — Elizabeth 
Gamble  of  Annagh  Castle,  county 
Tipperary,  by  whom  he  had  ono 
child,  a  daughter  Elizabeth,  born 
22nd  May,  1682,  and  died  4th 
June,  1682.  Having  no  male  issue, 
all  his  landed  estate  in  Wexford 
and  Tipperary  passed  to  his  nephew 
William,  son  of  his  brother  Richard 
of  Bunadubber;  with  the  proviso 
that,  "  in  default  of  heirs  male  of 

*  Estate :  In  these  troublous  times  it  was  said  that  "  a  Cleburne  might  ride  in 
safety  from  one  end  of  the  county  to  the  other."  Some  amusing  stories  are  told  of 
their  popularity  with  the  peasantry,  and  with  the  Rapparee  Chief  "  Galloping  Hogan" 
and  his  band._  Armistead  tells  the  following,  of  John  Clibborn  of  Moate  Castle,  who 
was  such  a  friend  and  champion  of  the  Quakers,  that  he  built  them  a  meeting-house 
(still  standing)  within  his  castle  grounds.  His  life  was  constantly  endangered  by 
succouring  these  people  :  "  On  one  occasion  he  was  dragged  by  the  hair  of  his  head  to 
the  place  of  execution  by  some  Tories,  when  fortunately  another  party  of  Tyrconnell'a 
men  arrived  and  inquiring  '  who  have  you  got  there,'  were  answered  '  Clibborn  !* 
'  Clibborn  !'  echoed  they,  •  a  hair  of  his  head  shall  not  be  touched ;'  and  they  bore  him 
off  in  triumph."— ^e/erf.  Miscel.  Vol.  L,  197.  The  Cleburnes  are  not  found  among 
"  the  Adventurers  for  land  in  Ireland,"  they  purchased  all  their  estateSj_and  were  so 
free  from  "  Land-hunger,"  that  the  Irish  felt  kindly  towards  them.

their  bodies,  all  his  property  was  to 
descend  to  the  heirs  general  of  the 
said  William  and  Eichard."      He 
was    of  a  weak,  unstable    nature, 
**  light-hearted,    reckless,    extrava- 
gant, and  so  much  given  to  hospi- 
tality, that  he  was  more  than  once 
suspected      of     'coshering'       the 
Priests    and  Tories."      Somewhat 
haughty    and    arrogant    with "  his 
equals,  he    was    affable    even    to 
famiharity   with   his   inferiors  and 
dependants  ;  but  his  was  "  the  pride 
that  apes  humility,"  for  in  his  will 
he  directs  that  "  my  body  shall  be 
buried  in  the  Church  of  Kilbarrow,* 
covering  my  grave  with   a  plaine 
Inarble  stone,  ingraving  thereon  my 
'name  and  coate  of  Armes."     The 
tomb  of  the  Cleburnes  is  still  in  a 
fair  state  of  preservation  near  the 
chancel    of    this    venerable     ruin. 
Lenihan,  the  Historian  of  Limerick, 
says   (N.  and   Q.,    1871,    p.  477): 
"  The  inscription  on  the  tomb-stone

his  having  been  (as  indeed  he  was  at  the  time)  a  minor  ;  and  the  evidence  of  the  old 
nurse  who  attended  Lady  Mornington  on  her  confinement,  the  late  Duke  mentioned 
to  me  that,  notwithstanding  the  nurse's  evidence  to  the  contrary,  the  "  Iron  Duke" 
was  a  minor  at  the  time  of  his  election  for  Trim  ;  and  he  therefore  requested  me  to 
find  out,  if  possible,  in  my  researches,  the  birthplace  and  birthday  of  his  illustrious 
father.  In  looking  up  several  registers  of  births,  marriages  and  deaths  bearing  on  my 
subject,  I  met  in  the  Baptismal  Register  of  St.  Peter's  Protestant  Episcopal  Church  ia 
Dublin,  the  date  of  the  great  Duke  of  Wellington's  baptism  ;  but  the  birthplace  and 
birthday  are  not  mentioned.  On  that  Baptismal  Register  is  a  brass  clasp  on  which  is 
engraved  the  fact  that  in  said  register  the  baptism  of  Field  IMarshal,  the  Duke  of 
Wellington,  ia  r-scorded.    Merrion  Square  is  iu  St.  Peter's  parish;  it. is  therefore

In  Gloucestershire,  England,  there  was  a  family  of  "  Cowley"  or 
"  Colley,"  who  took  their  name  from  Cowley,  a  manor  place  in  that  shire. 
Those' Cowleys  were  descended  from  Harding,  the  Dane,  who  was  also 
ancestor  of  the  Berkeley  (of  Berkly)  family. 

In  English  Wills  the  name  has* been  variously  written  "Cowley," 
"Colley"  and  "Coll." 

According  to  a  London  Visitation,  there  were  Cowleys  in  London,  who 
claimed  descent  from  a  Staffordshire  family  of  that  name,  but  of  whom  we 
can  learn  nothing.  Neither  can  we  learn  anything  of  the  Cowleys  of 
Rutlandshire,  from  whom  some  members  of  the  Mornington  family  would 
claim  descent.  But  we  venture  to  say  that  it  is  mere  conjecture  to  claim  for 
the  "Cowley"  of  Mornington  family,  either  an  English  or  an  ancient 
Irish  origin. 

In  the  past  history  of  Ireland,  since  its  connexion  with  England,-  it 
was  unhappily  not  fasJiionahle,  nor  was  it  a  sure  road  to  promotion  in  the 
British  Service,  to  be  an  Irishmant  or  to  bear  an  Lish  sirname.* 

believecT  tliat,  as  the  "  Iron  Duke's"  baptism  is  recorded  in  St.  Peter's  parish  register, 
Lady  Mornington  came  from  Dangan  Castle,  in  the  county  Meath,  to  Mornington 
House,  in  Msrrion  Square,  preparatory  to  her  Ladyship's  confinement.  It  was  a 
strange  coincidence  that  the  two  great  opponents  at  the  battle  of  Waterloo,  namely, 
Napoleon  the  First,  and  Field  Marshal  the  Duke  of  Wellington,  were  both  minors 
when  each  of  them  first  entered  on  liis  public  career  ;  and  it  is  worthy  of  remark  that 
each  of  those  personages,  in  order  to  gain  his  point,  had  his  majority  established  for 
him  by  false  evidence  !  Without  such  evidence,  however,  at  the  time,  the  great 
Duke  would  probably  never  have  become  the  hero  of  Waterloo  ;  nor  would  the  great 
Napoleon  perhaps  ever  have  become  the  Emperor  of  the  French. 

I  am,  dear,  Sir, 

Very  truly  yours, 

John  O'Hart. 
Rinsgend,  Dublin,  21st  December,  1885. 

Commenting  on  the  foregoing  letter,  the  Editor  oi  Notes  and  Queries  wrote  : 
"  The  following  extract  from  the  speech  of  the  Earl  Beaconsfield,  on  moving  the 
House  of  Commons  to  grant  the  necessary  funds  for  the  expense  of  the  Public  Funeral 
of  the  Duke  of  Wellington,  points  out  other  interesting  coincidences  in  the  lives  of -the 
two  great  warriors  :  'The  providential  superintendence  of  this  world  seems  seldom 
more  manifest  than  in  the  dispensation  which  ordained  that  the  French  Emperor  and 
Wellesley  should  be  born  in  the  same  year;  that  in  the  same  year  they  should  have 
embi-aced  the  same  profession  ;  and  that,  natives  of  distant  islands,  they  should  both 
Lave  sought  their  military  education  in  that  illustrious  land,  which  each  in  his  tura 
was  destined  to  subjugate.'  The  reader  may  be  reminded  that  Arthur  Wellesley 
was  sent  to  the  College  of  Angers,  then  directed  by  Pignard,  a  celebrated  French 
■engineer  ;  as  England,  at  that  time,  did  not  possess  any  institutions  devoted  solely  to 
military  education." 

*  Sirname:  On  this  subject  the  late  Duke  of  Wellington  in  one  of  his  letters  to 
us  says  that  if  his  father  had  called  himself  by  his  ancient  Irish  proper  name  "  Arthur 
Cowley,"  instead  of  Arthur  Wellesley,  he  vvould,  in  all  probability,  never  have  become 
Dul:e  of  Wellingion!  The  anti- Irish  feeling  which  then  prevailed  in  England,  and 
which,  unhappily,  still  obtains  in  some  of  the  Government  Departments  in  Ireland, 
may  have  suggested  the  Iron  Duke's  saying  that—"  to  be  born  in  a  stable  does  not 
constitute  a  horse  ;"  meaning  thereby  that  although  he  was  born  in  Ireland  he  was  not 
an  Irishman. 

See  the  "  Wellesley"  pedigree,  hifra,  for  the  assumption  of  that  family  name  by 
the  Mornington  "  Cowley"  family.

Several  persons  of  the  name  of  "  Cowley"  were  merchants  in  Bristol 
in  the  14th  and  loth  centuries  ;  and,  as  proved  by  old  Bristol  Wills' 
Bristol  at  that  period  carried  on  a  brisk  trade  with  Droghedaand  Limerick. 
It  is  therefore  thought  by  some  of  the  family  that  it  was  from  Glouces- 
tershire the  Mornington  branch  of  the  "Cowley"  family  came  to  Ireland  • 
because  Walter  Cowley  orColley,  who  was  an  ancestor  of  the  Mornington 
family,  lived  in  Droglieda,  a.d.  1537. 

Commencing  with  said  Walter's  father,  the  following  is,  according  to 
our  research,  the  pedigree  of  the  Mornington  "Cowley"*  or  "Colley"  family 
down  to  the  great  Duke  of  Wellington, f  who  d.  in  1852. 

1.  Robert  Cowleyij:  or  Colley  who 
was  Bailiff  of  Dublin  in  1515,  and 
who  must  have  been  a  very  old 
man  when  he  died  in  or  before 
1547  (for,  in  1537  he  was  called 
"  Old  Colley,")  married  and  had  two 
sons : 

I.  Walter,  of  Drogheda,  who  was 
in  1537  "Principal  Solicitor" 
(or  what  we  would  now  call 
Solicitor- General);  "  deprived" 
in  1546.  He  married  and  had  : 
I.  Henry  Colley,  who  was  Col- 
lector of  Drogheda  in  1571 ; 
and  who  is  said  to  have  been 

an  officer  in  Capt.  Brooke's 
Troop  in  1562. 
II.  Robert  Colley,  of  whom  pre- 

2.  Robert  Colley  :  son  of  Robert ; 
was  Clerk  of  the  Crown  in  1530, 
and  Master  of  the  Rolls  in  1538. 
He  married  and  had  : 

3.  Sir  Henry  Colley,  who  was 
appointed  to  Dangan  in  1586  ;  and 
had  grant  of  the  estate  of  Castle- 
carbery  in  1563.  He  was  twice

George  Colley,  who  m.  a  dau.'of

y/foxihy 'EAiioT  oi  Js'ortJiern  Notes  and  Queries  (Edinburgh:  David  Douglas),  we.  have 
received  the  following  iutercstiug  paper  : 

"  Was  Robert  Cowley  of  Irish  or  of  English  Blood  ? 

1.  Nothing  is  at  present  known  of  the  parentage  or  nationality  of  Robert  Cowley, 
who  was  in  1515  Bailiff  of  Dublin.  The  fact  that  he  held  this  office  and  afterwards  a 
Crown  appointment,  renders  it  improbable  that  he  was  of  pure  Irish  descent.  The  list 
of  Mayors  and  Bailiffs  of  Dublin  given  by  Ware  contains  few  if  any  purely  Irish  names  ; 
and  Crown  offices  at  that  period  were,  as  a  rule,  given  to  men  of  Emjllsh  descent  to 
the  exclusion  of  the  Irish. 

2.  JNothing  is  at  present  known  of  the  wife  of  Robert  Cowley,  but  an  Anthony 
Cowley  about  the  same  time  married  a  daughter  of  Sir  William  Skeffingtou  ;  and,  before 
the  close  of  the  IGth  century,  Robert's  descendants  had  in  several  cases  married  into 
•'  English"  families. 

N.B. — It  may  be  well  to  note  here  that  by  the  marriage  of  Sir  Henry  Cowley, 
gi'andson  of  Robert,  with  Catherine  Cusack,  dan.  of  Sir  Thomas  Cusack,  the  present 
iiouse  of  "  Cowley"  can  trace  a  descent  from  the  Wellesleys.    It  ia  well  known  that

the  first  Lord  IMornington  took  t!ic  name  ou  succeeding  to  the  estates  of  Garrett 
Welleslcy,  the  son  of  his  father's  sister  ;  and  derived  no  Wellesley  blood. 

3.  It  seems  ahnost  impossible  to  maintain  the  pure  Irish  origin  of  Robert  Cowle)--, 
in  the  face  of  the  statement  made  by  Archbishop  Lottas'in  15S7  :  that  Sir  Henry  Cowley 
(father  of  his  sou-ia-law  George  Cowley,  and  grandson  of  Robert)  was  of  "English 
Parents"  {Stale  Papers).  Tiie  expression  used  here  must,  as  elsewhere  in  the  same 
volume,  signify  "of  English  descent,"  as  distinguished  from  Irish  descent.  The 
Archbishop  knew  that  the  documents  in  wiiich  the  statement  occurs  would  l)e  laid 
before  the  Council ;  he  would  not  therefore  have  dared,  had  he  been  so  disposed,  to 
have  made  such  a  statement,  if  untrue,  concerning  a  family  then  so  well  known. 

4.  An  English  origin  for  this  family  offers  itself  in  a  very  marked  way  :  Amongst 
the  volumes  of  State  Papers  published  by  the  Government  is  a  valuable  account  of  the 
charter  of  foundation  of  Dublin,  styled  Nova  Brlstowa,  aud  its  colonization  by  citizens 
of  Bristol ;  lists  of  early  freemen  are  given,  aud  these  are  full  of  well  known  Glouces- 
tershire and  Somersetshire  names,  also,  of  course,  met  with  in  ancient  Bristol  docu- 
ments. Bristol  was  the  mercantile  metropolis  of  the  west  of  England,  and  scions  of 
Gloucestershire  knightly  f.imilies  settled  there  as  merchants.  John  Smith,  who  was 
Steward  of  the  Hundred  and  Liberty  of  Berkeley  from  1598-164:0,  left  valuable  MSf 
notes  which  have  lately  been  privately  printed.  In  his  "Hundred  of  Berkeley,"  p.  153, 
he  gives  a  pedigree  of  eleven  generations  of  the  knightly  family  of  Cowley,  de  Cowley, 
CO.  Gloucester,  from  Harding  (ancestor  also  of  the  Baronial  house  of  Berkeley)  to  Eliza- 
beth de  Cowley,  who  became  sole  heiress  in  the  16th  century.  The  Bristol  and  Dublia 
Cowleys  were  clearly  of  this  family. 

When  the  Municipal  Records  of  Dublin  for  the  period  between  1300  and  1500  are 
printed,  it  will  be  seen  if  the  old  Dublin  Cowleys  still  continued  to  rank  as  citizens  ; 
if  so,  it  will  probably  be  possible  to  j)rove  that  Robert  Cowley  was  of  this  stock,  and 
therefore  rightly  described  by  Archbishop  Loftus  as  "  English."

That  Garrett,  his  son,  the  second  Baron,  and  first  Viscount  Wellesley, 
of  Dangan  Castle,  county  Meath,  was  created  Earl  of  Mornington  ; 

That  Eichard,  the  eldest  son  of  Garrett,  became,  in  1799,  Marquis 
Wellesley,  in  the  Peerage  of  Ireland ;  that  said  Eichard  was  succeeded  in

Earl,  was  the  fourth  Earl  of  Mornington  ; 

That  William  Pole-Tylney-Long  Wellesley  was  succeeded  by  his  eldest 
son,  William-Richard- Arthur,  the  fifth  Earl,  who  was  born  1813,  and  died 
unm.  at  Paris  in  July,  1863,  when  he  was  succeeded  in  the  Earldom  and

the  first  Duke  of  Wellington,  was  born*  at  Mornington  House,  24  Upper 
Merrion-street,  Dublin,  24th  April,  1769  ;  died  at  Walmer  Castle,  14th

May,  1769."  To  this  passage  Maxwell  appends  the  following  footnote  :  "  Some  con- 
troversy has  arisen  as  to  the  precise  time  aud  place  of  the  Duke's  birth  ;  but  we  have 
his  own  authority  for  the  facts,  as  Ave  have  recorded  them,  conveyed  in  a  reply  to

Of  Arhourfield,  near  Reading,  Berkshire. 

The  Arms  and  pedigree  of  the  "  Conroy"  family  are  given  in  pp.  387- 
388  of  Vol.  I.  of  this  Edition.  Of  this  family  was  Sir  Edward  Conroy, 
Bart.,  of  Arbourfield,  Berkshire,  England,  who  died  in  1869,  in  his  60th 
year  of  age.  He  was  the  eldest  son  of  Sir  John  Conroy,  who  for  many 
years  filled  a  confidential  position  in  the  household  of  the  Duchess  of 
Kent.  In  1837  Sir  Edward  Conroy  married  Lady  Alicia  Parsons,  daughter 
of  Sir  Laurence  Parsons,  Earl  of  Rosse^  and  sister  of  the  late  Earl,  the 
great  Astronomer.  Sir  Edward  left  an  only  son,  John  (born  August, 
1845),  who  succeeded  him  in  his  title  and  estates. 

When,  in  the  beginning  of  the  seventeenth  century,  some  of  the  Irish 
clans  submitted  to  Queen  Elizabeth,  it  was  commanded  that  they  should 
thenceforth  not  only  hold  their  estates  by  English  instead  of  Iiish  law, 
but  also,  with  the  view  to  their  still  further  denationalization,  that  they 
should  abandon  the  distinctive  prefix  to  their  names.  From  that  time 
forward  this  family  name  was  spelled  Conry  or  Conroy. 

In  the  time  of  Cromwell,  John  O'Mulconry  or  Conry,  having  taken 
an  active  part  in  the  war  against  the  Roundheads,  lost  his  estates,  which 
were  confiscated,  and  he  died  abroad.  In  1657,  his  eldest  son  Charles 
obtained  a  re-grant  of  a  portion  of  the  property  in  Roscommon,  but  by 
his  adherence  to  the  cause  of  James  II.  he  was  totally  ruined,  and  was 
killed  at  the  Battle  of  the  Boyne.  His  grandchildren  again  settled  in  tho 
county  Roscommon,  and  appear  to  have  preserved  a  small  portion  of  the 
ancient  property,  which  the  family  still  hold.  Two  daughters  contract'^d 
alliances  with  the  families  of  the  Longfields,  Lords  of  Longueviile,  in  the 
CO.  Cork,  and  the  Hores  of  Harpurstown,  in  the  co.  Wexford.  Sir  Edward 
was  a  Deputy  Lieutenant  for  the  counties  of  Berkshire  and  Montgomery- 
shire, and  had  held  different  appointments  in  the  Diplomatic  Service.

the  "  Shanly"  pedigree,  and  to  his  wife  Mrs.  Constable,  we  wish  to  staie 
that  this  lady  had  by  her  first  husband  an  only  daughter,  Annabel  Con- 
stable, who;  in  January,  1788,  married  Major  Coots  Nisbitt,  of  luxury, 
in  the  county  Leitrim.

Alexander  Conyngham  (or  Cunningham),  a  scion  of  the  House  of 
Glencairn,  Scotland,  settled  in  Ireland,  circa  a.d.  1600.  Possessing  a 
love  of  wild  and  romantic  scenery,  the  lake,  the  mountain,  and  the  ocean, 
he  resided  in  Eossgul,  in  the  co.  Donegal.  Here,  with  a  people,  whose 
language  was  Gaelic,  he  determined  to  pass  the  residue  of  his  life ;  and 
here  in  a  castle  once  dwelt  MacSweeney,  the  Milesian  chief  of  that 
district,  but  who  was  then  the  tenant  of  a  neighbouring  cabin,  whilst  the 
solitary  Castle  reminded  him  of  the  former  wealth  and  power  of  his 
ancestors.  The  chief  was  beloved  by  the  people :  they  saw  in  him  the 
representative  of  an  illustrious  family,  and  paid  him  respect  and  reverence 
accordingly.  Alexander  Conyngham  married  his  daughter.  Sometimes 
ascending,  with  his  son-in-law,  the  summit  of  lofty  Mackish,  the  Chief 
would  point  out  the  immense  territory  of  which  he  had  been  deprived  by 
the  " Plantation  of  Ulster,"  observing:  "That  Castle  now  deserted  and 
covered  with  ivy  will  endure  for  ages,  and  oft  recall  the  days  of  other  years, 
while  I,  the  last  of  its  Chiefs,  shair sleep  in  the  tomb  of  my  fathers."

unhappy  time  in  Ireland,  and  who  was  outlawed  by  the  English.  In  the  Conyngham 
House  at  Letterkenny  was  (and  likely  still  is)  preserved  on  the  mantelpiece  a  stone 
on  which  it  is  recorded  that  during  the  troublous  times  in  Ireland  which  drove  the 
dispossessed  Irish  Proprietors  (see  "  The  Cromwellian  Devastation  of  Ireland,"  p.  799, 
Vol.  I.)  to  become  "Tories"  or  "Rapparees,"  Redmond  O'Hanlon  once  became 
separated  from  his  followers,  and,  being  weary,  he  lay  down  to  sleep.  He  was 
awakened  two  or  three  times  by  a  Lizard  running  over  his  face,  and  at  first  was  merely 
irritated ;  but,  as  he  became  more  aroused,  he  recollected  the  Lizard's  action  to  be 
accounted  for  as  a  warning.  He  therefore  arose,  looked  around,  and  saw  a  wild  boar 
ready  to  attack  him.  His  encounter  with  the  boar  drew  him  into  a  wood,  and  in  a 
direction  contrary  to  .that  he  was  about  to  take.  He  was  thus  saved  from  a  party  of 
njs  enemies,  who  were  lying  in  wait  for  him.

O'Callaghan,  in  his  "History  of  the  Irish  Brigades,"  states  that  this 
family  settled  in  Ireland  in  the  century  after  the  Invasion  ;  which  inclines 
us  to  believe  that  the  "  Cookes"  in  other  parts  of  Ireland  are  distinct  from 
them,  and  that  the  ancestor  of  this  family  came  to  Ireland  in  the  thirteenth 
century  with  Eoger  de  Bigod,  earl  of  Norfolk,  and  settled  in  the  county 
Carlow.  To  this  day,  even,  the  sirname  Cooke  is  very  prevalent  in  Norfolk 
— more  so,  than  in  any  other  part  of  England  or  Ireland. 

It  was  a  member  of  this  family  who  (see  Bishop  Moran's  Monasticon 
Hibernicum)  founded  a  Franciscan  Abbey  in  their  demesne,  now  known  as 
*'  Oak  Park,"  near  Carlow,  at  present  (1883)  the  property  of  Mr.  Bruen. 

We  have  traced  this  geneaology  back  to  John  Cooke,  of  Carlow,  who 
was  an  officer  in  Maxwell's  Regiment  of  Horse,  in  the  Army  of  King  James 
the  Second.  This  John  Cooke  and  his  brothers  took  up  arms  "  for  faith 
and  sovereign,"  and  so  warmly  espoused  the  cause  of  King  James,  that,  in 
grateful  recoguition  of  their  devotion  to  him,  His  Majesty  granted  to  them 
the  style  and  title  for  ever  of  The  Cookes  of  the  Cavaliers. 

The  family  estates  in  Carlow  and  elsewhere  confiscated,  because  of 
their  adherence  to  the  cause  of  King  James,  this  John  Cooke,  after  the 
battle  of  Aughrim,  settled  in  Connaught ;  where  he  and  his  descendants 
married  into  some  of  the  most  respectable  families  of  that  province.  One 
of  his  brothers,  named  Mathew,  went  to  France  as  an  officer  in  the  Irish 
Royal  Regiment  of  Footguards  ;  and,  most  likely,  was  the  person  alluded 
to  by  O'Callaghan,  in  his  "  Irish  Brigades,"  pages  332  and  595,  as  the 
Mathew  Cooke  who  there  died  in  1740. 

1.  John  Cooke,  of  Carlow,  above- 
mentioned:  living  A.D.  1691.  See- 
ing that  after  the  battle  of  Aughrim 
the  cause  of  King  James  was  lost, 
and  wishing  to  escape  the  Williamite 
troopers,  this  John  Cooke  crossed 
into  Mayo  and  there  met  and  mar- 
ried Mary  Lynch,  the  daughter  of 
Dr.   Patrick  Lynch,  of  Westport  ; 

by  her  he  had  issue  three  sons — 1, 
Charles;  2.  Q^homas ;  3.  Mathew. 
Thomas  died  early  in  life ;  and 
Mathew  joined  the  French  service. 
2.  Charles  :  eldest  son  of  John ; 
m.  in  1725,  Sheela  M6r  O'Dowda, 
daughter  of  the  O'Dowda,  prince  of 
Tireragh,  and  by  her  had  issue  two 
sons — 1.  Thomas ;  2.   John.     This

*  Naper  :  It  is  worthy  of  remark  that,  while  Mr.  Cooke,  of  Kilturra,  is  the  repre- 
sentative in  the  male  line  of  a  family  attainted  by  King  William  the  Third,  he  repre- 
sents the  Napers,  one  of  the  few  Sligo  families  (outside  the  Coopers  of  Markree,  and 
Lord  Colloouey),  attainted  in  the  Parliament  of  King  James  the  Second  ;  a  curious 
disclosure,  and  one  which  shows  that  much  "Orange  and  Green"  is  fused  in  some  Irish 
families.  One  might  well  look  for  PatriottSTti  in  this  family  ;  for,  one  of  the  Ormsbys 
was  Ldeut.-Colouel  of  the  Sligo  Volunteers  in  1782,  while  the  Right  Honourable  Joshua 
Cooper,  of  Markree,  M.P.  for  the  county  Sligo,  was  one  of  the  Delegates  to  the  Irish 
National  Convention  of  that  memorable  year  ! 

t  Tvhhercurry  :  This  James  Naper  was  the  direct  descendant  of  James  Napper  of 
Toher-an-choire,  (anglicised  "Tobercurry"),  who  was  attainted  in  the  Dublin  Parlia- 
ment of  King  James  the  Second,  a.d.  lliS9  ;  Celia  Naper's  mother  was  a  Cooper  of 
Markree  Castle ;  and  Henry  Meredith's  mother  was  an  Ormsby  of  Willowbrook. 
Henry  Meredith's  great-great-grandfather,  Kobert  Meredith,  was  (along  with  John

Among  the  "  Forfeiting  Proprietors  in  Ireland"  under  the  Cromwellian 
Settlement  (see  p.  248  of  our  "  Irish  Landed  Gentry  when  Cromwell  came 

f  Manchester :  Henry  Sothern  and  Co. 


to  Ireland."  Dublin:  1884),  appears,  under  the  heading  "County  of 
Dublin"  and  "Barony  of  Balrothery,"  the  name*  of  Eorbert  Corballis,  of 
Nutstown,  from  whom  this  branch  of  the  "  Corballis"  family  is  descended. 
So  popular  was  the  family  in  that  district  that  the  name  Coi'baUis  is  there 
still  identified  with  several  townlands. 

Dispossessed  of  his  estate  in  Balrothery,  Eobert  Corballis  of  Nutstown 
settled  in  the  neighbourhood  of  Tallaght  and  Saggart,  county  Dublin; 
whence  John  Corballis  (b.  circa  1729)  came  to  reside  in  New  Street, 
Dublin,  and  there  traded  as  a  Timber  Merchant.  On  his  death  (in  1806) 
he  left  to  his  children  some  £30,000,  realized  chiefly  in  the  timber  trade : 
a  very  considerable  achievement  when  we  consider  that  in  those  days  the 
Penal  Laws  against  Roman  Catholics  were  very  stringent.  This  John 
Corballis  and  his  father  and  mother  are  buried  in  Cruagh  churchyard,  at

A  Branch  of  the  Earls  of  Richmond. 

Arms :  Gu.  a  fesse  enn. 

The  house  of  Crawford  (a  branch  of  the  Earls  of  Richmond)  is  descended 
from  the  ancient  and  princely  line  of  Brittany  or  Bretagne.  The  leader  of 
the  famous  6,000  Britons  from  Aquileia,  who  retreated  through  all  the 
breadth  of  Italy  and  length  of  France,  despite  the  Emperor  Theodosius, 
wasCynan  Meriadog,  Prince  of  Powys,  cousin  of  Helen,  wife  of  Mac  Sin 
Wledig,  the  Emperor  Maximus,  whom  he  accompanied  with  his  own 
retainers  on  that  fatal  expedition  to  Italy,  a.d.  388.  This  Cynan  or 
Conan,  "  the  most  ancient  Christian  King  in  Europe,"  married  Darerea, 
daughter  of  Calphurnius,  his  cousin,  and  sister  of  St.  Patrick,  was  con- 
firmed in  the  sovereignty  of  Bretagne  by  Maximus,  and  died,  a.d.  421. 
From  Conan  descended  the  Breton  Counts  and  Dukes  terminating  in  the 
15th  century  in  Anne  of  Brittany,  wife  of  Charles  VIII.  and  Louis  XII.  of 
France.  Geoffrey,  Count  of  Rennes  and  Duke  of  Brittany  (ob.  1008), 
married  Havoise,  daughter  of  Richard,  first  Duke  of  Normandy,  by  whom 
he  had  Alan  III.,  Duke  of  Brittany  (ob.  1040),  married  to  Bertha  (daughter 
of  Alan  Cagnart,  Count  of  Cornnaille),  whose,  brother  Hoel  the  V.  or  Endo 
became  Duke  of  Brittany  (ob.  1084)  and  married  Havoise,  daughter  of 
Alan  III.,  by  whom  he  had  Conan  III.  (ob.  1148),  whose  daughter  Bertha 
married  Alan  Niger  (ob.  1165)  fourth  Earl  of  Richmond.  Endo  or  Odo, 
Count  of  Penthierre,  second  son  of  Geoffrey,  Duke  of  Brittany,  married 
Agnes,  daughter  of  Alan  Cagnart,  Count  of  Cornnaille,  and  had  Alan  the 
Red  and  Alan  the  Black,  both  Earls  of  Richmond,  Brian  (ancestor  of  the 
Counts  Chateaubriand),  Bardolph  of  Ravens wath  (progenitor  of  the  families 
of  Askew,  Cliburn,  and  Fitzhugh),  to  whom  '•  Askew  was  given  by  his  brother 
Alan,  Earl  of  Richmond,  after  1086."  (See  Gale  and  Whittaker's  Hist,  o 
Eichmond).  Geoffrey  Botterel  .first,  and  Etienne,  Count  of  Penthierre 
(ob.  1138),  who  by  Harvise,  heiress  of  the  Count  de  Guiocamp,  had  Alan 
Niger  (or  "  The  Savage"),  ob.  1165,  fourth  Earl  of  Richmond,  who  married 
in  1137  Bertha,  daughter  of  Conan  IV.  (le  Gros),  Duke  of  Brittany,  and 
had  by  her  Conan  V.  (le  Petit,  ob.  1171),  Brian  (progenitor  of  the  Lords 
of  Bedale),  Guy  (ancestor  of  the  house  of  LeStrange),  and  Reginald,  from 
whom  descended  the  Craivfords  of  Crawford.  The  family  of  La  Zouche  of 
Ashby  are  also  admitted  by  genealogists  to  be  descended  from  the  Earls 
of  Brittany,  but  how,  is  not  yet  precisely  known,  as  Burke  acknowledges 
that  "the  early  generations  of  the  Earls  of  Richmond  are  very  oon-

According  to  Smith's  History  of  Kerry,  p.  54,  the  Irish  family  of  Croshy  is 
a  branch  of  the  English  family  of  that  name;  but,  according  to  O'Donovan 
and  other  authorities,  the  family  is  of  Irish  origin.  These  say  that  the 
first  Crosby  of  note  was  son  of  the  "  Chiefe  Rhymer  of  O'Moore,*  who 
was  named  Patrick  MacCrossan,  *  dexterously  anglicised'  Crosby  and 
Crosbie."  This  Patrick  MacCrossan  became  interpreter  to  the  English  in 
Ireland,  in  the  reign  of  Queen  Elizabeth  ;  and  finally  an  underling  of  the 
Government,  in  Dublin.  He  is  said  to  have  thus  obtained  large  estates  in 
Kerry,  and  so  founded  the  family.  His  brother,  who  was  named  John, 
became  Bishop  of  Ardfert,  whose  grandson,  Sir  Thomas  Crosby,  Knight, 
whose  name  is  at  the  head  of  this  pedigree,  was  a  Captain  in  Carroll's 
Dragoons,  in  the  service  of  King  James  it. 

Archdeacon  Rowan  says :  **  The  present  Croshie  family  in  Ireland 
trace  their  origin  to  two  brothers,  Patrick  and  John.  The  line  of  Patrick 
ended  with  his  son  Sir  Piers  Crosbie,  one  of  the  victims  of  the  arbitrary 
Strafford  (fe?np.  King  Charles  I.).  John  became  a  clergyman,  and  in  1600 
was  advanced  to  the  See  of  Ardfert  and  Aghadoe.  Bishop  Crosbie  had  a 
numerous  family,  and  Captain  Sir  Thomas  Crosbie  was  the  son  of  the 
Bishop's  second  son  Colonel  David  Crosbie,  a  stout  soldier,  who  is  described 
as  a  '  known  enemy  to  the  Confederate  Catholics.'  He  was  recognised  by 
Cromwell  as  Governor  of  Kerry,  and  all  his  estates  guaranteed  to  him ; 
and  these  still  remain  in  the  family,  notwithstanding  the  attainder  of  Sir 
Thomas  Crosby.  In  his  case,  to  a  certain  extent  at  least,  loyalty  predomi- 
nated over  Party,  and  he  became  a  Captain  in  Carroll's  Dragoons,  in  the 
service  of  his  legitimate  Sovereign,  James  II." 

*  O'Moore  :  After  the  subjugation  of  Leix  by  the  English,  some  of  the  "  O'Moore" 
family  were  transplanted  to  Kerry,  where  also  by  a  curious  coincidence  we  find  was 
located  the  Crosbie  family.  *'  To  sketch  the  history  and  generation  of  the  Tories  (or 
Eapparees)  of  Ireland,"  says  Prendergast  in  his  Ireland  from  the  Restoration  to  the 
devolution,  1660  to  1690,  (London  :  Longmans,  Green,  and  Co.,  1887),  "  one  ought  to 
go  up  to  the  replantation  of  Ireland  in  the  reign  of  Philip  and  Mary,  in  the  King's  and 
Queen's  Counties.  It  was  in  mercy  to  the  O'Moores,  and  O'Connors  (Faley),  and  five 
other  septs  or  stocks — the  Kellys,  the  Lalors,  the  Dorans,  the  MacEvoys,  and  the 
Doolans — that  Sir  Arthur  Chichester,  in  1608,  transplanted  the  remains  of  them  to 
Munster,  after  eighteen  rebellions  in  forty  years,  lest  the  *  White  Moores'  (as  he  called 
them)  should  be  utterly  extirpated.  By  this  nickname  of  the  White  Moors,  Sir 
Arthur  alluded  to  the  gross  breach  of  faith  of  the  King  of  Spain  in  driving  out  the 
Moors  of  Andalusia,  in  1609,  contrary  to  the  treaty  made  with  the  remnant  of  that 
race  after  their  rebellion  in  a  former  reign  ;  the  consequence  being  that,  for  230  years 
after,  these  Moors  became  the  pirates  of  Algiers,  and  Sallee  Rovers,  in  hatred  of  the 
injustice  of  the  Christians."

From  the  Dublin  University  Magazine  (of  September,  1854),  and  Bathmore 
and  its  Traditions  (Trim  :  Moore,  1880),  we  learn  that,  in  the  early  part  of 
the  fifteenth  century,  the  Lord  of  Rathmore  was  Sir  Christopher  Cruys 
(now  Cruise),  who  had,  besides,  many  large  possessions,  amongst  them  the 
castles  and  estates  of  Cruisetown  and  Moydorragh,  lying  near  each  other 
in  the  barony  'of  Morgallion,  in  the  county  Meath.  Of  Sir  Christopher 
and  his  family  a  singular  history  is  orally  preserved  among  the  descen- 
dants of  the  rural  denizens  of  Rathmore  in  the  olden  time. 

According  to  the  tradition,  Sir  Christopher  Cruys  lived  to  a  mature 
age  unmarried ;  his  nephews,  therefore,  entertained  hopes  of  succeeding 
to  all  his  large  property  ;  but  late  in  life  the  good  knight,  losing  his  taste 
for  celibacy,  married  a  lady  with  whose  beauty  and  amiable  disposition  he 
had  been  captivated.  This  marriage  enraged  his  kinsmen,  some  of  whom 
resided  at  Robertstown  and  others  at  Brittas,  seats  in  the  vicinity  of 
Cruisetown.  They  testified  peculiar  hostility  to  Lady  Cruys,  whose  con- 
duct in  all  respects  was  most  exemplary,  and  who  lived  in  perlect  harmony 
with  her  husband.  In  due  time  she  gave  promise  of  presenting  Sir 
Christopher  with  a  direct  heir ;  and  the  disappointed  expectants  wickedly 
determined  on  destroying  both  the  knight  and  the  lady  before  the  birth 
of  the  child. 

It  happened  that  Sir  Christopher  and  bis  wife  went  to  spend  some 
days  at  the  Castle  of  Cruisetown,  v,^hich  is  no  longer  extant,  but  it  was 
then  a  strong  edifice,  and  stood  beside  an  artificial  mound  near  the  now 
ruined  church,*  and  in  view  of  a  small  lake.  One  fine  sunny  day  Sir 
Christopher  induced  his  lady,  for  the  sake  of  exercise,  to  walk  with 
him  to  Moydorragh.  Unfortunately  they  took  no  attendant ;  for, 
though  well  aware  that  the  kinsmen  were  much  displeased  at  their 
uncle's  marriage,  the  latter  had  no  suspicion  of  the  extent  of  their 
malevolence.  The  movements  of  the  knight  and  the  lady  had,  how- 
ever, been  watched  by  spies  ;  and,  on  their  return  from  Moydorragh, 
an  ambush  was  set  for  them  near  the  Castle  of  Cruisetown.  Just  as  they 
came  in  sight  of  the  castle,  Lady  Cruys  perceiving  the  brightness  of  the 
day  to  be  suddenly  overcast  by  some  peculiar  kind  of  obscurity,  looked 
up  and  saw  in  the  sky  a  terrific  phenomenon,  like  the  well-defined  and 
dark  figure  of  a  giant,  looking  down  upon  them  with  a  fiend-like  aspect. 
Alarmed  at  such  an  unusual  appearance,  a  nervous  apprehension  seized 
her  mind,  and  she  exclaimed  in  Irish  (then  the  vernacular),  "  Oh,  Sir 
Christopher !  look  up !  see !  some  dreadful  danger  threatens  us.  That 
sign  is  a  warning ;  let  us  hurry  home — haste  I  haste  !" 

*  In  tliis  dilapidated  church  is  a  sculptured  and  emblazoned  tomb  of  a  branch  of 
the  Cruyses  of  a  later  date  than  the  epoch  of  the  story,  being  of  the  latter  part  of  the 
seventeenth  century.  It  commemorates  Walter  and  Elizabeth  Cruys,  and  their  son 
Patrick,  and  his  wife,  Gdtherine  Dal  ton.  The  two  latter  are  also  commemorated  by  a 
rude  atone  cross  in  the  churchyard.

Sir  Christopher  tried  to  smile  away  her  fears  as  mere  superstition, 
telling  her  that  the  apparition  was  only  formed  by  a  cloud,  though  he  must 
own  it  was  a  singular  one;  but,  even  supposing  it  supernatural,  why  should 
they  believe  it  directed  to  them  rather  than  to  any  other  person  in  the 
neighbourhood  ]  But  Lady  Cruys  replied,  "It  is  !  it  is,  indeed,  for  us.  See  I 
the  dark  shadow  of  the  figure  has  fallen  upon  us,  cold  and  black.  Hasten 
home !  hasten  home  1" 

As  she  was  hurrying  her  husband  forward,  several  armed  men,  led  by 
his  relatives,  sprang  from  a  thicket,  and  rushed  towards  them.  The 
knight  was  armed  with  the  small  sword  commonly  worn.  He  drew  it  j 
and  setting  his  back  to  a  tree,  defended  himself  as  well  as  he  could  from 
the  murderous  attack,  and  said  to  his  wife,  "Run  now  !  run  for  life — for 
my  life  as  well  as  your  own.  On  to  the  castle  and  send  me  help."  Lady 
Cruys  fled  with  the  speed  of  one  who  did  run  for  life,  but  two  of  the 
assailants  sprang  after  her  with  drawn  swords.  She  had,  however,  a  few 
paces'  advantage,  which  she  kept,  for  terror  winged  her  feet.  Her  cries, 
as  she  approached  the  castle  had  been  heard,  and  the  gate  was  opened  at 
the  instant  she  reached  it — one  moment  longer  of  delay  had  been  fatal, 
for  the  pursuers  were  then  so  near  (says  tradition),  that  just  as  the  gate 
closed  on  the  fugitive,  one  of  them,  making  a  blow  at  her,  cut  off  a  part 
of  her  mantle  that  streamed  behind. 

The  poor  breathless  lady  was  scarcely  able  to  give  her  orders  to  the 
domestics ;  but  they  quickly  comprehended  her ;  and,  hurrying  out  at  a 
postern,  they  sped  to  their  master,  whom  they  found  left  quite  alone 
under  the  tree  that  had  supported  him,  pierced  with  wounds,  aud  covered 
with  blood,  but  still  alive,  and  in  possession  of  his  faculties. 

They  stanched  the  blood,  and  conveyed  him  gently  to  the  castle.  But 
he  was  mortally  wounded;  and  only  lived  long  enough  to  receive  the  rites 
of  his  Church,  to  give  some  directions,  and  bid  a  tender  farewell  to  his 
disconsolate  wife,  in  whose  arms  he  expired. 

The  new-made  widow  felt  that  her  husband's  life  was  not  the  only 
sacrifice  sought ;  she  knew  that  her  own,  and  that  of  the  unborn  heir  were 
at  stake,  and  she  resolved  to  do  her  utmost  to  save  both,  and  defeat  the 
cupidity  of  her  enemies.  To  this  end  she  determined  on  flying  to  England 
for  safety ;  and,  securing  the  title-deeds  of  Sir  Christopher's  property, 
and  as  much  of  the  family  plate  as  she  could.  All  the  latter  that  was  at 
Cruisetown  she  placed  in  a  strong  oak  chest,  with  heavy  stones  in  the 
bottom,  and  had  it  conveyed  secretly  by  night  out  of  the  castle,  and  sunk 
in  the  neighbouring  lake.  To  save  the  plate  and  papers  at  Rathmore  was 
her  next  object ;  to  attain  which  she  must  leave  Cruisetown  by  stratagem, 
lest  she  should  be  intercepted.  She  kept  the  castle  closely  barred  from 
all  intruders,  and  despatched  a  messenger  to  Rathmore,  requiring  the 
attendance  of  the  domestics  at  the  funeral  of  their  late  master  in  Cruise- 
town Church.  She  then  caused  it  to  be  reported  that  she  was  dangerously 
ill  from  agitation  and  over-exertion. 

By  torchlight  the  relatives  and  tenants  of  Sir  Christopher  Cruys 
crowded  the  small  church  to  witness  the  obsequies  of  the  murdered  man, 
whose  widow  was  then  announced  to  be  dead.  While  their  attention  was 
thus  engaged,  another  funeral  train,  composed  of  trusty  men  of  Rathmore, 
issued  silently  from  the  postern,  bearing  a  coffin  covered  with  a  pall,  but

pierced  throughout  with  holes  to  admit  air  to  the  poor  trembling  mourner, 
who  lay  within  as  a  corpse.  To  any  who  questioned  them  on  their  road  they 
replied,  that  they  were  conveying  the  remains  of  Lady  Cruys  to  Rath- 
more,  as  she  could  not  be  interred  with  her  deceased  husband  on  account 
of  the  family  feuds. 

Gently,  but  speedily,  was  the  journey  performed ;  the  coffin  was  takea 
into  the  Castle  of  Rathmore,  and  its  faint  and  cramped  inmate  lifted  out, 
and  tended  by  eager  hands.  But  no  time  was  to  be  lost — scarcely  was 
she  recovered  from  her  fatigues,  when  she  hastily  selected  the  principal 
parchments,  and  packed  them  for  conveyance  ;  then  collecting  the  plate, 
she  saw  it  nailed  closely  down  in  the  coffin,  which  was  carried  into  the 
Church  of  St.  Lawrence,  and  laid  in  a  ready-prepared  grave,  amid  the 
tears  of  those  who  believed  it  to  contain  the  corpse  of  their  beloved  lady. 

Day  had  not  yet  dawned  when  Lady  Cruys,  closely  disguised,  stole 
away  from  Rathmore,  accompanied  by  one  female  domestic,  and  bearing 
with  her  the  title-deeds,  her  jewels,  and  a  sum  of  money.  She  reached 
Dublin,  and  embarked  on  board  a  vessel  bound  for  London,  where  she 
arrived  in  safety.  And  there  she  gave  birth  to  a  daughter,  whom  she 
named  Mary  Anne ;  and  immediately  notified,  in  due  form,  the  facts  of  her 
own  existence,  and  the  birth  of  her  child,  to  the  kinsmen  of  Sir  Christopher, 
and  asserted  the  right  of  his  posthumous  heiress.  But  strong  in  the 
possession  of  the  property  they  had  usurped,  they  laughed  to  scorn  the 
claims  of  a  helpless  widow  and  infant  in  another  country. 

Lady  Cruys  endeavoured  to  obtain  redress  from  the  English  courts  of 
law ;  but  her  resources  were  soon  exhausted,  and  her  exertions  were  barred 
by  poverty.  Years  elapsed ;  the  young  girl  grew  up,  the  heiress  of  large 
estates,  but  inured  to  an  inheritance  of  unmitigated  want  and  care. 
Mother  and  daughter  were  reduced  to  so  low  an  ebb,  that  they  were  com- 
pelled to  support  themselves  by  the  labour  of  their  hands.  But  Lady 
Cruys  had  instructed  Mary  from  childhood  in  all  her  rights,  teaching  her 
the  names  and  descriptions  of  the  several  portions  of  her  estates  ;  and  the 
dispossessed  heiress  had  amused  herself  at  her  toils  by  composing  on  the 
subject  of  her  inheritance  a  simple  song  in  Irish,  in  which  language  she 
and  her  mother  always  conversed  as  their  native  tongue. 

At  the  period  to  which  the  narrative  has  now  reached,  Sir  Thomas 
Plunket,  of  Killeen  (county  Meath),  happened  to  be  in  London.  He  was 
the  third  son  of  Christopher  Plunket,*  first  Baron  of  Killeen.  Sir  Thomas 
belonged  to  the  legal  profession,  and  when  in  London  frequented  the 
Temple.  One  day,  when  in  the  Temple  Gardens,  and  leaning  over  the 
parapet  that  divided  them  from  the  strand  of  the  Thames,  he  observed  a 
young  and  lovely  girl,  in  poor  attire,  but  with  an  air  of  gentle  blood, 
washing  clothes  in  the  river,  and  then  spreading  them  on  a  large  stone. 
She  was  singing  to  a  plaintive  air  a  song,  the  words  of  which  he  found  to 
be  Irish.  _  He  listened  with  surprise  and  attention,  and  soon  discovered 
that  the  singer  was  describing  her  own  circumstances. 

This  is  no  fiction.  A  portion  of  the  song  has  been  preserved,  solely  by 
oral  tradition,  for  upwards  of  400  years.  We  have  collected  it  in  frag- 
ments from  among  the  Rathmore  peasantry,  in  its  native  Irish,  from  which , 

*  He  obtained  the  lands  of  Killeen  by  marriage  with  the  heiress,  Genet  Cusack. 


we  have  made  the  foUomng  translation,  adhering  as  closely  as  we  could 
to  the  metre  of  the  original.  As  a  poetical  composition  this  son»  has  no 
merit ;  bat  the  descriptive  epithets  attached  to  the  diflferent  names  are 
even  still  applicable.  Of  the  places  mentioned  in  it  many  are  recorded  in 
patents,  inquisitions,  etc.,  as  being  held  along  with  the  Manor  of  Rathmore 
by  the  descendants  of  Mary  Grays. 

From  the  original  Irish. 

Ah  !  ble^ed  Mary  !  hear  my  sighing, 
jOa  this  cold  stone  mean  labours  plymg  ; 
lYet  Rathmore's  heiress  might  I  name  me, 
And  broad  lands  rich  and  many  claim  me. 

Gilstown,  Rathbeg,  names  known  from  childhood  ; 
Fair  Johnstown,  hard  by  bog  and  wild  wood  ; 
Ra-taaffe  (Blackwater  near  it  floweth), 
And  Harton,  where  the  white  wheat  groweth. 

Kilskier,  with  windows  shining  brightly  ; 
Teltown,  where  race  the  coursers  sprightly ; 
Balreask,  abundant  dairies  showing, 
Full  pails  and  churns  each  day  bestowing. 

Thee,  Ballycred,  too,  mem'ry  prizes  ; 
Old  Oristown  to  mind  arises  ; 
Caultown,  near  bogs,  black  turf  providing  ; 
Eathconny,  in  its  "Baron"  priding. 

The  Twelve  Poles,  Armabregia,  follow  ; 
Kilmainham,  of  the  woody  hollow ; 
Cruis'etown,  with  lake  by  sunbeams  greeted ; 
Moydorragh  gay,  'mid  fair  roads  seated. 

Still  could  I  speak  of  townlands  many ; 
Three  score  along  the  banks  of  Nanny  ; 
Twelve  by  the  Boyne,  if  it  were  pleasure 
To  dwell  on  lost  and  plundered  treasure.* 

Such  was  the  song  of  the  dispossessed  heiress  of  Rathmore,  sung  on  English 
ground,  in  the  fifteenth  century  ;  and,  by  a  singular  coincidence,  brought 
round  in  the  revolutions  of  time,  the  same  song  was  again  sung,  on  English 
ground,  under  similar  circumstances,  in  the  seventeenth  century,  by  a 
second  unfortunate  heiress  of  Rathmore,  a  lineal  descendant  of  Mary 
Cruys.     But  let  us  not  anticipate. 

Sir  Thomas  Plunket,  being  himself  a  native  of  Meath,  was  well 
acquainted  with  the  story  of  the  Cruys  family,  and  with  the  names  of  the 
principal  lands,  and  at  once  guessed  that  the  young  singer  must  be  the 
lost  heiress.     He  courteously  addressed  her  in  Irish  (thus  conciliating  her 

*  Of  the  places  named  in  the  song,  Gilstown  and  Eathconny  are  near  Rathmore  ; 
the  allusion  to  the  "Baron"  of  Eathconny  is  forgotten.  Rataaffe,  Balreask,  Caul- 
town,  and  Ballycred  (now  Knightstown),  are  in  the  vicinity  of  Navan,  but  not  all  in 
the  same  direction.  Kathbeg,  near  Trim  ;  Johnstown,  near  Clonmellon  (Barony  of 
Fore),  Near  Kells  are  Oristown,  Kdskier,  and  Teltown  ;  the  latter,  the  ancient  Tailtean, 
was  fjwnoua  for  horse-races  from  the  reigns  of  the  pagan  kings  for  many  centuries.

confidence  at  the  outset),  told  his  name,  intimated  his  suspicion  of  her 
real  rank,  and  offered  his  services.  Poor  Mary,  delighted  with  this  gleam 
of  hope,  brought  him  to  the  humble  dwelling  of  her  mother,  who,  eager 
to  interest  in  her  cause  a  man  of  his  importance,  showed  him  all  her 
parchments,  and  gave  him  proofs  of  the  identity  of  her  daughter  as  heiress 
of  Sir  Christopher  Cruys.  Sir  Thomas  undertook  to  exert  himself  for  the 
restitution  of  the  estates  ;  stipulating,  however,  that  if  his  efforts  proved 
euccessful,  he  should  be  rewarded  with  the  (no  longer  empty)  hand  of  his 
fair  client.  It  were  to  be  wished  that  he  had  wooed  in  a  less  business-like 
and  gallant  manner ;  but  he  was  past  the  heyday  of  youth,  and  was  a 

He  conducted  the  cause  with  so  much  ability,  that  he  brought  it  to 
triumphant  issue,"  and  married  the  enriched  heiress.  He  attained  the 
dignity  of  Lord  Chief  Justice  of  the  King's  Bench,  in  Ireland ;  and  he 
and  his  lady  fixed  their  residence  at  the  Castle  of  Rathmore,  which  thence- 
forward became  the  family  seat  of  their  descendants,  known  as  the 
Plunkets  of  Rathmore.  Doubtless,  the  plate  submerged  at  Cruisetown, 
and  buried  at  Rathmore,  soon  saw^  the  light  again,  after  the  restoration  of 
the  right  owner.  A  memorial  of  a  visit  (perhaps  the  bridal  visit)  of  Mary 
and  her  husband  to  the  seat  of  Lord  Killeen  (ancestor  of  the  Earl  of 
Fingal),  the  father  of  Sir  Thomas,  is  still  extant  in  the  demesne  of 
Killeen.*  It  is  the  base  of  a  cross,  sculptured  with  ecclesiastical  figures, 
bearing  no  date,  but  inscribed  with  the  names  of — 

^Hrg  Crngs. 

It  was  the  amusement  of  Lady  Plunket,  after  her  happy  settlement  at 
Rathmore,  to  sing  for  her  friends  and  family  the  simple  Irish  song  that  had 
attracted  the  attention  of  Sir  Thomas,  and  had  been  (under  Providence) 
the  means  of  her  good  fortune.  Thus  it  became  popular  in  the  neighbour- 
hood, and  was  long  preserved  in  memory,  though  now  extant  but  in  frag- 
ments, never  before  (we  have  reason  to  believe)  committed  to  writing. 

Sir  Thomas  died  in  1471.  In  the  churchyard  of  Athboy  is  a  sculptured 
tomb,  without  date  or  inscription,  but  bearing  the  effinies  of  a  knight  and 
lady :  it  is  said  to  be  the  monument  of  Sir  Thomas  Plunket,  and  his  wife, 
Mary  Cruys.  They  were  the  parents  of  two  sons  and  three  daughters  : 
of  the  latter,  the  eldest,  Ismay,  marrying  William  Wellesley  (or  IVeslcy, 
as  then  spelled),  has  the  high,  though  posthumous,  honour  of  being  a 
direct  ancestress  of  the  great  Duke  of  Wellington,  who  was  tenth  in 
descent  from  her,  and  eleventh  from  Mary  Cruys,  whose  story  derives  an 
additional  interest  from  her  illustrious  descendant.! 

*  Killeen  Castle,  the  seat  of  the  earls  of  Fingal,  was  founded  by  Hugh  de  Lacy, 
in  1180.    It  is  two  and  a-balf  miles  from  Dunshaughlin. 

t  The  pedigree  runs  thus:  Ismay  Plunket  and  William  Wellesley,  of  Dangan, 
Meath,  had  a  daughter,  Alison,  who  married  John  Cusack,  of  CussingtoD,  and  had  a 
son,  Sir  Thomas  Cusack,  Lord  Chancellor  of  Ireland,  whose  daughter,  Catherine, 
married  Sir  Henry  Colley,  of  Castlecarbury  ;  and  their  son,  Sir  Henry,  marrying 
Anne,  daughter  of  Adam  Loftus,  Archbishop  of  Dublin,  had  a  son,  Sir  Henry,  whose 
son,  Dudley,  left  a  son,  Henry,  whose  son,  Richard,  took  the  name  of  Wellesley,  by 
the  will  of  his  cousin  WiHiam  Wellesley,  and  had  a  son,  Garrett,  Earl  of  Mornington^ 
father  of  the  great  Duke  of  Wellington. — See  the  "Wellesley"  pedigree,  infra.

he  obtained),  so  incurred  the  displeasure  of  her  father,  that,  to  avoid 
the  fury  of  an  incensed  Monarch,  Sir  Waltero,  with  his  lady,  privately, 
retired  into  Ireland,  which  was  then  involved  in  great  wars  between  the 
ancient  natives  and  their  invading  English  enemies;  where,  having 
signalized  his  great  valour  and  good  conduct  on  many  occasions  on  the 
invader's  side,  he  was  soon  advanced  to  considerable  offices  and  employ- 
ments, and  made  governor  of  the  borders  of  Meath,  then  the  limits  of  the 
English  conquests.  In  that  part  of  the  kingdom  of  Meath,  now  called 
"  Westmeath,"  Sir  Waltero  acquired  great  estates  and  possessions,  which 
his  posterity  enjoyed  until  they  were  dispossessed  by  the  Usurper  Crom- 
well.   This  Sir  Waltero  was  the  ancestor  of  Dalton. 

Sir  Waltero  de  Aliton,  so  far  as  we  can  find,  had  but  one  son,  who 
-was  named  Philip  De  Aliton,  from  whose  three  sons — 1.  Nicholas,  2. 
Philip  the  Younger,  and  3.  John,  the  families  of — 1.  Dalton^  2.  Baton  and 
Datoon,  and  3.  Delaton,  are  respectively  descended. 

the  ancestor  of  the  Dalkons  of  Bal- 
ly nacarrow. 

7.  Piers  :  son  of  Maurice.  This 
Piers  had  two  brothers — 1.  Maurice; 
and  2.  Philip,  who  was  the  ancestor 
of  the  Daltons  of  Dungolman. 

8.  Edmond :  his  son ;  had  a 
brother  named  John,  who  was  the 
ancestor  of  the  Daltons  of  Dun- 
donnell,  and  of  Molinmechan. 

9.  Thomas  :  son  of  Edmond.

the  county  Dublin,  to  the  following  effect  (see  Notes  and  Queries  for  18th  March,  1876) :

This  family  derive  their  origin  from  the  Emperor  Charlemagne  (or  Charles 
the  Great),  and  were  of  great  eminence  in  France.  David  de  Arcie 
assumed  this  surname  from  "Castle  de  Arcie,"  his  chief  seat,  situate 
within  thirty  miles  of  Paris;  and  was  the  ancestor  of  De  Arcie  modernized 
P'Arcy*^  The  Irish  O'Dorchaidhe  (see  the  "  Darcy"  pedigree,  p.  401,  Vol.  I.) 
is  the  origin  of  Darcy  and  Dorcy ;  some  of  whom  have  changed  the  name 
to  B'Arcy. 

1.  David  de  Arcie,  of  "Castle 
de  Arcie,"  in  France.

4.  Sir  Richard  :  his  son ;  was 
a  powerful  man  in  France,  and

*  D'Arcy  :  Of  this  family  was  Sir  John  D'Arcy,  Knt.,  one  of  the  heroes  of  Cressy,. 
•who  was  Constable  of  Trim  Castle  from  1326  to  1334.  His  son  William  (b.  1330)  wai 
seated  at  Flatten,  county  Meath,  where  his  descendants  resided  for  many  generations, 
until  Nicholas  D'Arcy,  a  Captain  in  the  Army  of  King  James  II.,  was  attainted  and 
his  estates  forfeited.  Some  portions  of  them  were  subsequently  regranted  to  his  son 
and  heir  George  D'Arcy  of  Dunmoe,  county  Meath.  Cornet  Nicholas  D'Arcy,  wha 
appears  to  have  been  the  Captain  Nicholas  D'Arcy  here  mentioned,  fought  through  the 
Jacobite  war  ;  was  wounded  at  Derry  ;  and  shortly  before  the  Battle  of  the  Boyne^ 
being  in  command  of  one  hundred  and  sixty  men  at  Killeshandra,  was  compelled  to-

sa.  Motto :  Vigilo  et  spero. 

In  the  Harleian  MS.,  numbered  1191,  this  family  pedigree  commences 
with  Timon,  Symon,  or  Simon,  who  lived  temp.  King  Henry  IV.  .  That 
Simon  left  a  son  Nicholas,  commencing  with  whom,  Holme,  ia  the  Had. 
Collection  numbered  2121,  gives  Dant  throughout.  And  Nicholas  left  two 
sons — 1.  Nicholas,  2.  John. 

In  Harl.  MS.,  2230,  the  arms  of  the  family  are  the  same  as  in  MS. 
1191 ;  viz.,  a  chough's  head  and  an  owl. 

The  Harl.  MS.  6174  is  similar  to  MS.  1191.  In  the  Harl.  MS.  6185, 
the  pedigree  begins  with  "Thomas  Daunte  of  Olepen,"  husband  of  Alice,* 
daughter  of  William  Throgmorton. 

Berry  gives  the  following  in  his  list  of  arms :  Daunt — Sa.  three  bea- 
cons, with  ladders,  or,  fired  gu. 

In  Edmondson's  list  wo  fiad  Dauntre  or  Dawntre :  Sa.  three  beacons, 
fired  or,  the  flames  proper ;  and  Dauntre  :  Gloucester  or,  a  chev.  in  the 
midst  of  three  birds'  heads,  sa.  beaked  gu. 

And  in  Guillim  we  find  :  "  He  beareth  sable  three  beacons  fired  or,  the 
flames  proper,  by  the  name  of  Dauntre."t 

According  to  Rudder,  who  wrote  in  1779,  the  following  is  the  pedigree 
of  the  "  Daunt"!  family,  which  Rudder  states  was  authenticated  by  Peers 
Manderit,  Windsor  herald  of  arms;  and  by  William  Hawkins,  Ulster 
King-at-arms  of  all  Ireland. 

1.  Simon  Daunt.  S.Nicholas:  their  son;   living 

2.  Nicholas :  his  son  ;  married  24  Henry  VI. ;  mar.  Alice,  daugh- 
Alice,  dau.  of  William  de  Tracy.§         ter  and  heir    of   Walter   Jurden, 

*  Alice  :  This  Alice  Throgmorton  was  sister  to  the  wife  of  Sir  Walter  Raleigh. 

t  Dauntre  :  In  Stowe's  Chronicle  of  England,  deposited  in  the  Library  of  the 
British  Museum,  London,  Edition  a.d.  1615,  pa;go  263,  it  is  stated:  "  Battaile  of 
Poitiers  (19  September,'  1356)  .  .  .  The  next  day  after  the  battle,  all  the  prisoners 
•were  numbered  ;  to  wit,  the  French  King,  also  Phillip,  his  sonne,  the  Archbishop  of 
Lenon,  .  .  the  Earle  Daunter,  .  .  .  Edward  Prince  of  Wales  brought  all  the 
prisoners  and  captives  of  them  that  kept  them,  and  carried  them  witQ  him  to 
Bordeaux,  there  to  remain  in  safe  custodie,  during  his  abode  there.  The  Prince 
returned  to  Eogland  with  the  Fr-ench  King  and  many  other  prisoners."    .     .     . 

From  the  fact  of  an  Earl  Daunter  (presumably,  the  head  of  this  family)  having 
espoused  the  cause  of  the  French  King,  at  the  Battle  of  Poictiers  (1356)  it  may 
reasonably  be  assumed  that  the  family  had  fiefs  in  France,  as  well  as  in  England  :  a 
fact  not  uncommon  in  the  Auglo-Xorman  families. 

X  Daunt  :  It  is  considered  that  some  members  of  the  Dent  family  have,  in  Ireland, 
assumed  the  name  "  Daunt." 

§  Tracy  :  It  is  asserted  that  this  Norman  Noble  was  a  descendant  of  one  of  the 
assassins  of  St.  Thomas  a  Be"cket,  Archbishop  of  Canterbury,  temp.  King  Henry  II.  ; 
and  that  the  said  William  de  Tracy  is  in  the  male  line,  represented  by  the  Lotd

2.  John. 

4.  John :  the  second  son  of  Nich- 
olas ;  married  Anne,  dau.  of  Sir 
Robert  Stowell,  of  Somersetshire, 
by  whom  he  had  three  sons — 1. 
John,  2.  Thomas,  3.  Stephen,  and 
three  daughters — Margaret,  Maude, 
and  Alice.  He  was  attached  to  the 
Lancastrian  family,  and  of  consider- 
able power  in  his  time  ;  as  may  be 
gathered  from  the  subjoined  letter* 
to  him  by  the  then  Prince  of  Wales. 

5.  John  ;  son  and  heir  of  John  ; 
mar.  Margery,  the  daughter  and

two  daughters,  Jane  and  Alice.

7.  Thomas  :  the  eldest  son  of 
Christopher ;  m.  Alice,  dau.  of  Wil-

had  issue  five  sons — 1.  Henry,  2.

John,  and  four  daughters — Mary, 
Elizabeth,  Joyce,  and  Florence. 

8.  Henry :  the  eldest  son  of 
Thomas ;  m.  Dorothy,  dau.  of  Giles 
Hussey,  of  Motcombe,  in  Somerset- 
shire ;  and  left  Frances,  his  only 
daughter  and  heiress,  married  to 
J.  Bridgman,  of  Nimpsfield.  Upon 
the  death  of  Henry,  without  male 
issue,  his  brother  Thomas  (the 
second  son  of  Thomas)  succeeded 
to  this  manor  and  estate.  He  mar- 
ried Mary,  dau.  of  Brian  Jones,  of 
Glamorganshire,  by  whom  he  had 
Thomas,  his  only  son  and  heir,  and 
one  daughter,  Margaret. 

9.  Thomas  :  only  son  of  Thomas; 

*  Letter  :  lu  the  year  1471,  John,  No.  4  on  the  foregoing  stem,  received  the 
following  letter  written  by  Edward  Prince  of  Wales,  son  of  King  Henry  the  Sixth  : 
"  Trusty  and  well-beloved  wee  greete  yowe  well  acquaintinge  yowe  that  this  day  weB

To  our  trusty  and  well  beloued  John  Daunt." 


t  Oulepen  :  This  family  was  evidently  of  Saxon  origin.  It  therefore  seems  strange 
that  the  Yorkists  left  the  "Oulepen"  manor  to  this  John  Daunt,  who  was  a  partizaa 
of  the  House  of  Lancaster,  But  Thierry,  in  his  History  of  the  Norman  Conquest,  says 
that  the  Saxon  proprietors  were  left  undisturbed  by  the  Normans  in  a  district  which 
comprised  part  of  the  actual  Gloucestershire.  Lt  may  interest  the  antiquarian  to  know 
that,  at  the  Oulepen  manor,  the  same  furniture  exists  there  now  that  existed  when 
Queen  Margaret,  wife  of  King  Henry  VI.,  was  the  guest  of  the  aforesaid  John  Daunt, 
the  night  preceding  the  Battle  of  Tewksbury.  The  building  is  of  stone  ;  the  outer 
walls  being  about  six  feet  thick  :  and  the  wainscottiug  of  the  apartments  richly  carved. 
It  is  a  strange  fact  that  several  Lancastrian  familes,  of  whom  that  of  Daunt  wa.s  one, 
have  changed  their  old  armorial  bearings  for  the  Cornish  choujhs.

peeri  ;  but  merely  barones  minores.

John,  3.  Achilles,  4.  George,  and 
four  daughters,  Frances,  Catherine, 
Mary,  and  Elizabeth. 

10.  Thomas  :  the  eldest  son  and 
heir  of  Thomas  ;  m.  Elizabeth,  dau. 
of  Sir  Gabriel  Lowe,  of  Newark,  in 
the  parish  of  Ogleworth,  and  left 
issue  his  only  daughter  and  heiress, 
who  was  married  to  Thomas  Webb, 

of  Stone,  in  the   county  of , 

and  died  in  childbed  without  issue, 
whereupon  George,  the  youngest 
brother  of  Thomas,  and  next  male 
heir  of  the  family,  succeeded  to  this 
manor  and  estate.  This  George 
married,  first,  Martha,  daughter  of 
Major  Henry  Turner,  of  Bandon 
Bridge,  in  the  county  of  Cork,  in 
Ireland ;  and  secondly,  Anne,  dau. 

of  Thomas  KnoUes,  of  Killeheagh, 
in  the  county  Cork,  and  by  her  had 
issue  five  sons  —  1.  Thomas,  2. 
George,  3.  Henry,  4,  Achilles,  5. 
John,  and  one  daughter,  Martha. 

11.  Thomas  r  eldest  son  of 
George,  succeeded  to  the  manor  of 
Olepen,  and  married  Elizabeth, 
dau.  of  George  Singe  alias  Milling- 
ton,  of  Bandon  Bridge,  clerk.  They 
had  issue  two  sons  (twins) — Thomas 
and  Achilles,  born  in  1702  ;  and 
four  daughters,  Martha,  Hannah,' 
Elizabeth,  and  Mildred. 

12.  Thomas  Daunt:  elder  son, 
and  heir  of  Thomas  and  his  wife 
Elizabeth;  was,  in  1779,  the  lord 
of  the  manor  of  Olepen>  (This 
Thomas  Daunt,  who  died  in  1304, 
left  an  only  daughter  and  heir  who, 
in  1807,  was  lady  of  this  manor). 

According  to  Fosbrooke,  who  wrote  in  1807  : 

"  Owlpen,  Wolpen,  Ulepenne  .  .  .  Robert  de  Olepen,  temp.  Edward  IV., 
left  Margaret,  dau.  and  heir,  wife  of  John  Daunt,  father  of  Christopher,  who  held  this 
manor  and  messuages  2  cott  56  acres  in  Clowe,  and  4  mess  in  Wotton.  Christopher 
was  father  of  Thomas,  father  of  Henry  and  Thomas  ;  which  Henry  having  issue  Giles 
who  died  before  his  father  s.^?.,  and  Frances,  wife  of  Sir  John  Bridgmau,  the  latter 
pretended  claim,  but  was  ousted  through  entails  by  the  male  heir.  The  Daunt,  her 
uncle.  Rudder  has  given  a  pedigree  of  this  family,  which,  as  it  commences  only  from 
24  Henry  VI.  (from  whose  son,  the  unfortunate  Edward,  Prince  of  Wales,  the  family 
received  a  letter,  still  preserved  by  them  and  printed  in  Rudder),  \  shall  carry  back 
to  Edward  I.  and  II.  The  family  were  settled  in  Wotton  parish,  of  which  was  Thomas 
Daunt,  temp.  Edward  II.,  after  whom  was  Nicholas,  father  of  John  and  Nicholas, 
which  John  married  the  heir  of  Oulepenne  ;  John  and  Simon.  John,  son  of  Simon, 
who  lived  temp.  H.  VII.,  and  others  were  younger  brothers,  but  a  fine  was  levied  io 
Mich,  term  21  Hen.  VI.,  of  tenements  in  Wotton,  Wottonforren,  and  Bradley,  and  the 
Wotton  estates  devolved  to  the  first  Nicholas  of  Wotton.  .  .  .  The  capital  mes- 
suage lies  in  Owlpen,  but  most  of  the  lands  are  in  Nenrington  Bagpath,  which 
accounts  for  the  benefice  being  a  chapelry  of  that  rectory.  Thomas  Daunt,  Esq.,  who 
died  in  IS04,  left  an  only  daughter  and  heir,  now  (1S07).  lady  of  this  manor.  .  .  . 
The  manor  is  held  of  Lord  Berkeley,  by  suit  of  his  hundred  court,  and  the  rent  of  dn. 
paid  to  Wottonforren." 

The  various  branches  of  the  family  of  Vaunt,  noAV  existing  in  Ireland, 
derive  their  origin  from  the  ancient  race  of  that  name,  long  seated  in 
GloucestershLre ;  where  the  principal  stem  possessed  the  manor  of  Owlpen 
for  several  centuries.  Many  writers  on  heraldry  identify  the  name  of 
"Daunt"  with  that  of  Dauntre,  which  occurs  in  the  "Eoll  of  Battle 
Abbey."  Glover  and  others  assign  to  "Daunt,"  of  Gloucestershire,  the 
arms  which  Gwillyn  assigns  to  "  Dauntre,"  viz. — sable,  three  beacons  with 
ladders,  or,  fired  gules.  In  a  very  old  MS.  in  Ulster's  office,  these  arms  are 
also  appropriated  to  Daunt  of  Gloucestershire. 


The  first  settlement  of  the  "Daunts"  in  Ireland  appears  to  have  beea 
in  the  reign  of  Elizabeth ;  when  Thomas  Daunt  (second  son  of  Thomas 
Daunt  of  Owlpen,  by  his  wife,  Alice  Throckmorton  of  Tortworth),  became 
the  lessee  of  Tracton  Abbey,  near  Kinsale  ;  and,  in  1595,  purchased  the 
estate  of  Gurtigrenane  from  Sir  Warham  St.  Ledger.  This  Thomas 
became  lord  of  the  manor  of  Owlpen,  on  the  death  of  his  elder  brother 
Henry,  without  issue  male,  in  1608.  From  him  descended  Mary  Daunt, 
sole  daughter  and  heiress  of  the  oldest  line.  She  married  Thomas 
Anthony  Stoughton,  of  Kerry;  and  died  in  1868,  being  succeeded  in 
Owlpen  and  Gurtygrenane  by  her  son,  Thomas  Anthony  Stoughton,  of 
Owlpen  (living  in  1880),  who  served  as  High  Sheriff  of  Gloucestershire, 
in  1873. 

James  Daunt,  of  Tracton  Abbey  (of  which  place  he  was  joint-lessee 
with  Thomas  of  Owlpen),  was  High  Sheriff  of  the  county  Cork,  in  1627  ; 
Thomas  Daunt,  of  Gurtygrenane,  was  High  Sheriff  in  1645  ;  and  Samuel, 
Daunt,  of  Knocknasillagh,  was  High  Sheriff  in  1749. 

In  Sir  Bernard  Burke's  Landed  Gentry,  the  genealogical  seniority  of 
the  existing  lines  of  "  Daunt"  is  stated  as  follows  :  I.  The  Owlpen  line, 
now  merged  in  the  family  of  Stoughton,  II.  That  of  Fahalea,  Carrigaline, 
Cork,  whose  proprietor,  Henry  Daunt,  became  representative-general  on 
the  death  of  the  late  Mrs.  Stoughton.  This  Henry  Daunt  had  two  first 
cousins — 1.  Thomas  Townsend  Daunt,  of  Stoke-Damerel,  Davenport, 
England,  Barrister-at-Law,  born  31st  Dec,  1816 ;  2.  Rev.  E.  S.  T.  Daunt, 
vicar  of  St.  Stephen's,  Launceston,  Cornwall,  who  had  issue  :  both  cousins 
living  in  1880,  and  the  only  surviving  sons  of  George  Digby  Daunt,  late 
Lieutenant  97th  or  Queen's  Own,  who  was  born  Oct.,  1783,  and  died  Jan., 
1861,  and  who  was  the  second  son  of  Thomas  Daunt,  of  Fahalea,  Glinny, 
etc.  The  only  child  of  Thomas  Townshend  Daunt,  of  Davenport,  here 
mentioned,  is  George  Digby  Daunt,  born  1846,  and,  in  1880,  in  the  Royal 
Navy.  Ill,  The  family  of  Mrs.  George  Daunt,  of  Newborough.  IV. 
That  of  the  late  George  Daunt,  of  Silverne,  whose  nephew,  Dr.  Hunger- 
ford,  now  (1880)  owns  that  property.  V.  That  of  the  late  Rev.  Achilles 
Daunt,  B.D.,  of  Tracton  Abbey,  Dean  of  Cork.  VL  That  of  William 
-Joseph  O'Neill-Daunt,  of  Kilcascan  Castle,  Ballyneen,  living  in  1887. 
This  William  Joseph  O'JST.  Daunt  has  a  first  cousin,  Richard  Gumbleton 
Daunt,  M.D.,  Edinburgh,  who  is  a  naturalized  Brazilian,  living  (in  1887) 
in  Campinas,  San  Paulo,  Brazil,  and  has  occupied  many  important  public 
offices  there  ;  the  descent  from  whom  is  as  follows  : 

I.  Richard  Gumbleton  Daunt, 
M.D.,  mar.,  in  1845,  Donna  Anna

Under  the  Acts  of  Settlement  and  Explanation  (1661-1665),  Captain. 
John,  Richard,  and  Thomas  Dawson  obtained  grants  of  land  in  Ireland, 
much  of  which  has  passed  away  from  the  family  ;  and  many  members  of  the 
family  are  reduced  to  the  condition  of  tillers  of  the  soil.  This  Captain 
John  Dawson  was  one  of  the  "Forty-nine  Officers;"  his  descendants  were 
as  follows : 

1.  Captain    John    Dawson,    of 
Prummany,  county  Monaghan. 

2.  Richard  :  his  son ;  had  a  sister 
Mary,   who  married  Patrick  Mor 

Duffy.     (See  No.  2  on  the  "  Duffy'" 
pedigree,  p.  423,  Vol.  I.) 

3.  James  :  his  son ;  settled  in  the 
county  Cork.     Had  two  sons  : — 1. 

in  her  woollen  under-garment ;  and  in  Bandon,  then  one  of  the  enemy's  strongholds 
in  Ireland  (an  enemy's  stronghold  often  being  the  best  hiding  place),  reared  her  son 
(the  first,  now  nominally  known,  ancestor  of  General  Arthur  O'Connoi'),  in  English 
ideas  and  customs.  The  widow  taught  her  son  to  write  his  name  Conner  ;  as  the 
Ballybricken  family  still  spell  the  name.  The  Kilcaskan  branch  of,  the  "Daunt" 
family  shares  the  blood  of  the  O'Connors  Kerry  ;  the  paternal  grandmother  of  Mr. 
William  O'Neill  Daunt  and  of  Doctor  Richard  Gumbleton  Daunt  (both  living  in  1SS7) 
being  of  that  family,  and  ccusiu-german  of  General  Arthur  O'Connor,  son  of  Pi.oger 
O'Connor,  brother  of  General  Arthur  O'Connor,  who  was  in  the  service  of  France,  and 
whose  grandson.  Captain  Ferdinand  O'Connor,  is  son-in-law  of  Marshal  MacMahon, 
the  Duke  of  Magenta,  living  in  1887.  General  Arthur  O'Connor  married  Donna  Ercilia, 
daughter  of  General  Francis  Burdett  O'Connor  (brother  of  Fergus),  and  had  an  only 
son,  Don  Thomas  O'Connor  d'Arlacb,  an  LL.D.  of  the  University  of  Chuquisaca,  wha 
in  1888,  resided  at  the  City  of  Farija,  in  Bolivia,  and  then  had  three  children.  Thia 
General  was  baptized  "Francis  Burdett,"  as  godson  of  the  English  radical  Sir 
f  rancis  Burdett ;  and  married  Donna  Francisca  Kuyloba,  who  died  October,  1886, 

*  Dawson  :  Some  members  of  this  family  in  Munster  say  that  the  name  wag. 
originally  the  French  UOssone  ;  while,  in  p.  402  of  Vol.  I.  of  this  Edition  we  give  ifr 
as  one  of  the  anglicised  forms  of  the  Irish  MacDaibhidh,  derived  from  David  M6r, 
who  is  No.  122  on  the  *'  Davidson"  pedigree,  and  who  lived  in  the  beginning  of  the 
15th  century.  Some  of  the  descendants  of  that  David  M6r  may  have  emigrated  to- 
France,  and  there  assumed  the  name  D'Ossone;  but  some  of  them  settled  in  Eng- 
land, whence  some  of  their  descendants  afterwards  came  to  Ireland,  under  the  name

This  family  name  has  been  variously  rendered  Courcy,  Courcie,  Curcy, 
Cursie,  and  Curcie  ;  and,  according  to  Lodge,  is  allied  to  most  of  the  princes 
of  Europe.  It  derives  its  descent  in  the  male  line  from  the  House  of 
Lorraine,  of  the  race  of  the  Emperor  Charlemagne,  who  died  A.D.  814 ; 
and,  in  the  female  line,  from  the  three  first  Dukes  of  Normandy.  Tracing 
the  descent  from  Charles  Martel,  the  following  is  the  pedigree  :

Carson,  LL.D.,  Lord  Bishop  of  Kilmore,  Elphin,  and  Ardagh,  who  died  1874,  and  was 
married  to  Eleanor  Anne  Burton,  by  whom  he  left  issue — the  eldest  son  being  Rev. 
Thomas  W.  Carson,  A.M.,  born  1834,  and  living  in  1880;  2.  Rev.  Joseph  Carson, 
D  D.,  and  S.F.T.C.D.,  married  to  Harriet,  sister  of  Sir  John  Blunden,  of  Castle

born  1844,  and  living  in  1880. 

t  Caldhech  :  The  issue  of  that  marriage  was  Dorothea  Carson  (died  1878),  m.  ia 
1823  to  Edward  Moore,  of  the  Bawn,  county  Tyrone,  and  had  issue— the  eldest  sur- 
viving son  being  Thomas  F.  Moore,  living  in  1880. 

%  Eepresentative  :  This  Matthew-James  Taylor,  of  London,  was  married,  and  had 
an  only  son,  Charles  Taylor,  living  in  1880. 

§  Teutonicus  :  By  Norman  writers  Balderic  Teutonicus  was  so  styled,  possibly 
because  he  had  spent  some  time  with  his  friends  in  Germany  ;  and  was  also  described 
as  a  stout  and  warlike  commander.

Sir  Almeric  Tristram,  ancestor 
of  the  Earl  of  Howth. 

Sir  John  De  Courcy  having 
served  King  Henry  XL  in  his  wars 
in  England  and  Gascoigne  was  sent 
by  that  Monarch  to  Ireland  in  1177. 
Of  the  Anglo-Norman  invaders  of 
Ireland,  Sir  John  De  Courcy  was 
one  of  the  most  renowned.  He 
was  a  man  of  great  strength,  of 
gigantic  stature,  and  indomitable 
courage.  Holiugshed  states  that 
De  Courcy  rode  on  a  white  horse, 
and  had  three  eagles  painted  on  his 
standards,  to  fulfil  a  prophecy  made 
by  Merlin,  viz.,  "that  a  knight 
riding  on  a  white  horse,  and  bear- 
ing birds  on  his  shield,  should  be 
the   first  of  the  English  who,  with

force  of  arms,  would  enter  and  con- 
quer Ulster."  De  Courcy  had  his 
chief  castle  at  Downpatrick;  he 
assisted  William  Fitz  Adelm  in  the 
government  of  Ireland,  from  1177 
to  1179.  Among  the  Eeligious 
Houses  endowed  by  De  Courcy  was 
the  Abbey  for  Benedictines  at 
Downpatrick,  circa  1180,  to  which 
he  gave  a  Charter  which  was  wit- 
nessed by  his  brother  Jordan  De 
Courcy  ;  and  St.  Andrew's  Monas- 
tery, in  the  Ards.*  In  1181,  he 
was  created  Earl  of  Ulster,  to  which 
dignity  was  attached  the  lordship  of 
Connaught ;  he  was  the  first  of  the 
Anglo-Norman  invaders  of  Ireland 
whom  Henry  II.  dignified  by  any 
title.  In  1182,  De  Courcy  married 
Africa,  daughter  of  Godred,  King 
of  the  Isle  of  Man  ;  and  he  unsuc- 
cessfully invaded  Connaught  in 
1188.  His  great  rivals  were  the 
De  Lacys,  Lords  of  Meath,  with 
whom  he  had  many  contests. 

While,  according  to  the  religious 
devotions  of  that  period,  walking

shrines  of  three  of  Ireland's  greatest 
saints  there  buried,  namely,  Saints 
Patrick,  Columkille^  and  Bridgid, 
Sir  John  De  Courcy.,  who  was  'ac- 
companied only  by  his  two  nephews 
— sons  of  his  brother  Jordan  De 
Courcy-^was  attacked  by  De  Lacy's 
followers;  when  the  two  nephews 
were  slain  while  defending  their 
uncle,  and  he,  having  nothing  to 
defend  himself  with  but  the  pole  of, 
a  Cross  which  he  had  picked  up 
from  the  ground,  was  overpowered 
and  made  prisoner  after  a  desperate 
struggle,  in  which,  we  are  told,  he 
slew  thirteen  of  De  Lacy's  men.j' 
Through  the  influence  of  De  Lacy, 
sustained  by  King  John,  Sir  John 
De  Courcy  was  banished  from  Ire- 
land ;  he  died  an  exile  in  France, 
A.D.  1210.— See  Darcy  McGee's 
History  of  Ireland.  According  to 
Giraldus  Cambrensis,  Sir  John  De 
Courcy  died  without  leaving  a  son 
to  succeed  him ;  but,  according  to 
other    authorities,    he  had    a  son

parish  iu  the  barony  of  Lecale,  county  of  Down,  and  province  of  Ulster  ;  five  miles 
and  a  half  S.  E.  by  E.,  from  Downpatrick  ;  and  is  so  called  from  a  lofty  green  hill  of 
conical  form  called  the  Ward,  situated  to  the  west  of  the  town.  From  the  remains  of 
several  castles  it  appears  to  have  been  formerly  a  place  of  some  importance :  "Jordan's 
Castle"  is  memorable  for  the  gallant  and  protracted  defence  that  it  made  during  the 
insurrection  of  the  Earl  of  Tyrone,  in  the  reign  of  Elizabeth ;  and  derived  its  present 
name  from  its  loyal  and  intrepid  proprietor,  Simon  Jordan,  who  for  three  years 
sustained  the  continued  assaults  of  the  besiegers,  till  he  was  at  length  relieved  by  the 
Lord  Deputy  Mountjoy,  who  sailed  with  a  fleet  from  Dublin,  and  landed  here  on  the 
17th  June,  1611;  and  after  relieving  the  garrison  pursued  the  insurgents  .  .  .  j 
and  Jordan  was  rewarded  for  his  services  by  a  Concordatum  from  the  Queen. 

'i Men:  As  evidence  of  the  great  strength  of  members  of  the  De  Courcy  family 
even  in  the  15th  century,  the  Four  Masters,  under  a.d.  1472,  make  special  mention  of 
a  MacJordan  who  was  descended  from  a  branch  of  that  family  : 

"  MacWilliam  Burke  marched  with  an  army  into  Hy-Maine,  to  aid  Teige  Caoch 
O'Kelly,  and  after  gaining  power  over  the  Hy-Manians,  from  the  Suck  (river)  west- 
ward, and  taking  hostages  trom  them,  great  punishment  was  executed  against  them 
ultimately  ;  for  six-and-twenty  soldiers,  along  with  the  grandson  of  Walter  Burke,  the 
sons  of  MacMaurice,  the  sons  of  MacJordan,  the  son  of  MacAnveely,  and  others  having 
fled  (or  strayed)  from  their  forces,  were  taken,  and  all  put  to  death  by  the  Manians, 
except  alone  MacJordan,  who  made  his  escape,  though  wounded,  through  his  valour; 
MacWilliam  returned  home  in  sorrow."

DE  LACY.  (No.  1.) 

Arms :  Or,  a  lion  ramp.  purp. 

The  ancient  Irish  antiquaries  say  that  Charlemagne  (or  the  Emperor 
Charles  the  Great)  was  the  ancestor  oi  Lacy  ;  from  him  down  to  Sir  Hugo 
(or  Hugh)  De  Lacy|  (to  whom  by  charter.  King  Henry  the  Second  of 

*  Mihs :  In  the  History  of  Ireland,  by  John  James  McGregor,  Second  Edition 
(1829),  it  is  stated  that  "The  persecution  by  the  De  Lacys  against  the  De  Courcys, 
after  the  imprisonment  of  Sir  John  De  Courcy  in  1203,  was  so  great  that  the  De  Lacys 
procured  the  assassination  of  the  natural  son  of  De  Courcy,  \dz.,  John  De  Courcy,  Lord 
of  Raheny  or  Satheny  and  Kilbarrock,  county  of  Dublin." 

This  name  Miles,  originally  "  Meiler,"  and  more  lately  "Myler,"  is  now  rendered 
*'  Myles ;"  and  is  to  this  day  a  favourite  name  in  the  Jordan  family,  as  well  as  in 
other  families  in  Ireland. 

_  _  t  Baron  :  In  consideration  of  their  ancestors  the  successors  of  the  barons  of 
Kinsale  were  allowed  the  peculiar  privilege  of  wearing  their  hats  in  the  Royal 
presence  :  a  right  which,  we  are  told,  the  baron  of  Kinsale  exercised  on  the  occasion 
of  King  George  the  Fourth's  visit  to  Ireland,  a.d.  1821. 

t  Hugh  de  Lacy  :  The  De  Lacys  came  from  Normandy  with  William  the  Con- 
queror,  and  were  earls  of  Lincoln,  in  England.  Hugh  de  Lacy  came  to  Ireland  with 
Kuig  Henry  the  Second,  a.d.  1171,  and  obtained  from  that  monarch  a  grant  of  the 
whole  kmgdom  of  Meath,  as  already  mentioned.  He  was  lord  palatine  of  Meath,  and 
many  years  chief  governor  of  Ireland.  He  erected  numerous  castles,  particularly  in 
Meath  and  Westmeath,  as  those  of  Trim,  Kells,  Ardnorcher,  Durrow,  &c.,  and  endowed 
some  monasteries.  He  is  thus  described  in  Holingshed  :— "  His  eyes  were  dark  and 
deep-set,  his  neck  short,  his  stature  small,  his  body  hairy,  not  fleshy,  but  sinewy,  strong, 
and  compact;  a  very  good  soldier,  but  rather  harsh  aud  hasty."  It  appears  from 
Hamner  and  others,  that  he  was  an  able  and  politic  man  in  state  aflfairs,  but  very

The  following  is  our  genealogy  : 
— Anthony  D'Lacy,  the  son  of  Hugh 
D'Lacy,  was  Lord  Lieutenant  of  Ire- 
land in  1335,  as  were  many  more  of 
the  said  family,  which  may  be  seen  by 
Compendium  of  Prances  Nicholas, 

page  14.  Gilbert  D'Lacy,  the  son 
of  said  Anthony,  had  a  son  John 
D'Lacy,  Earl  of  Meath,  who  married 
a  sister  to  Eichard  IIL,  King  of 
England,  and  was  killed  with  said 
Eichard  at  the  battle  of  Bos  worth, 

ambitious  and  covetous  of  wealth  and  great  possessions ;  he  is  also  represented  as  a 
famous  horseman.  De  Lacy's  second  wife  was  a  daughter  of  King  Roderick  O'Connor ; 
axid  his  descendants,  the  De  Lacys,  were  lords  of  Meath,  and  earls  of  Ulster,  and 
founded  many  powerful  families  in  Meath,  Westmeath,  and  Louth,  and  also  in  Limerick, 
some  of  whom  were  distinguished  marshals  in  the  service  of  Austria  and  Russia.  The 
castle  of  Dearmagh  or  "Durrow,"  in  the  King's  County,  was  erected  by  De  Lacy  on 
the  site  of  a  famous  monastery  of  St.  Columkille,  which  he  had  thrown  down  ;  and  his 
death  was  attributed  by  the  uneducated  Irish  to  that  circumstance  as  a  judgment  from 
Heaven.  The  man  who  killed  De  Lacy  fled  to  his  accomplices  in  the  wood  of  Clair  or 
*' Clara,"  but  it  appears  from  MacGeoghegan  and  others,  that  the  Irish  attacked  and 
put  to  the  sword  the  English  retinue  at  the  castle  of  Durrow,  and  that  having  got; 
De  Lacy's  body  into  their  possession,  they  concealed  it  nearly  ten  years,  when,  A.D. 
1195,  it  was  interred  with  great  pomp  in  the  abbey  of  Bective,  in  Meath  ;  Mathew 
O'Heney,  archbishop  of  Cashel,  and  John  Comyn,  archbishop  of  Dublin,  attending  at 
the  ceremony. — Connellan.

22nd  August,  1485.  Hugh  D'Lacy, 
the  son  of  said  John,  had  a  sou 
Patrick  D'Lacy,  who  married  Mary 
Courtney,  daughter  of  his  Excel- 
lency Philip  Courtney^  who  was  a 
near  relative  to  Richard  IL,  King 
of  England,  and  his  Viceroy  in  Ire- 
land, A.D.  1383.  Said  Patrick 
D'Lacy  and  Mary  Courtney  had  two 
sons,  Eddy  and  Peter.  Eddy  was 
married  to  Lord  Dunboyn's  dau., 
by  whom  he  had  several  issues,  the 
eldest  of  which,  William,  married 
Margaret  Supple,  daughter  to  the 
Eight  Honourable  Supple,  of  Innis- 
faile.  Said  William  had  a  son 
Pierce  D'Lacy,  who  married 
Catherine  Baggott,  of  Baggots- 
town,  whose  son  Captain  John 
D'Lacy,  married  Julian  Browne, 
dau.  to  Colonel  Browne,  and  niece 
to  Lord  Kenraare.  Captain  John 
D'Lacy  was  115  years  old  when  he 
died  ;  he  had  issue  Maurice,  Peter, 
Pierce,  John,  James,  and  Fanny 
D'Lacy,  who  mar.  Richard  Canter, 
Captain  of  Horse  to  King  Charles. 
Maurice  married  Jane  Canter,  who 
had  several  issues,  the  eldest  of 
whom,  John,  was  married  to  Kelton 
Wall.  Peter  D'Lacy,  son  of  Captain 
John,  married  Mary  Courtney,  dau. 
of  Thomas  Courtney,  and  Catherine 
Neagle,  by  whom  he  had  issue  Peter, 
John,and  JohannaD'Lacy.  Johanna 
was  married  to  Browne  of  Rath- 
cahil;  Peter  became  Field  Marshal 
of  Russia;  and  John  was  married 
to  Jane  Canter,  and  lived  at  Clori- 
keen,  near  Abigdon,  in  the  county 
of  Limerick ;  so  that  John,  who  was 
married  to  Kelton  Wall,  was  cousin 
german  to  John  and  his  wife  Jane 
Canter.  James,  the  son  of  Captain 
John,  quitted  Ireland  after  the  siege 
of  Limerick ;  John  or  Pierce,  the 
sons  oi"  Captain  John,  was  the 
father  of  Bishop  Robert  D'Lacy,  of 
Limerick,  who  had  many  brothers  ; 
D'Lacy,  of  Ballingarry,  was  brother 

to  Bishop  D'Lacy,  and  had  issue 
Patrick  D'Lacy,  whom  the  Bishop 
apprenticed  to  Joseph  Franklin, 
Cord  wain  er,  of  the  City  of  Limerick,

Mary  Doyle,  of  the  City  of  Limerick, 
Edmond,  James,  George,  Pierce, 
Patrick,  John,  and  Francis  D'Lacy. 
John,  as  above  mentioned,  the  son 
of  Patrick,  is  now  living  and  aged 
about  82  years  ;  James,  the  son  of 
Patrick,  had  issue  Pierce  and  George

aged  as  mentioned  in  our  former 
application ;  Edmond,  the  son  of 
Patrick,  had  issue  Patrick,  who  is 
now  living  and  aged  40  years  ;  we 
cannot  state  the  General's  Christian 
name,  but  that  Patrick,  the  Cord- 
wainer,  was  cousin  to  the  General,  and 
we  refer  you  to  the  claim  of  Pierce, 
the  brother  of  George  above  men- 
tioned, whom  he  sent  to  Vienna  in 
the  year  1829,  and  do  claim  accord-

"  Count  Peter  Lacy  was  born  in 
Kilkeedy,  in  the  co.  of  Limerick, 
in  1678.  He  was  an  ensign  in  the 
Prince  of  Wales  Irish  regiment  at 
the  siege  of  Limerick,  he  being 
then  in  his  fourteenth  year.  After  the 
surrender  of  Limerick  he  went  with 
his  uncle,  General  Lacy,  to  France, 
and  entered  the  regiment  of  Ath- 
lone,  with  which  he  served  in  Italy 
and  on  the  Rhine.  Being  mus- 
tered out  of  service  after  the  peace 
of  Ryswick,  he  entered  the  Russian 
service  as  Captain  of  Infantry  in 
1700,  and  rose  by  his  valour  to  the 
rank  of  Marshal  and  Commander- 
in-Chief  of  the  Russian  forces.  He 
was  honoured  with  many  marks  of 
distinction  by  the  Empress  Cathe-

This  family  name  occurs  frequently  in  Inquisitions  of  the  reign  of  Eichard  L, 

*  Feild :  This  name  has  been  modernized  Delafield,  Delafeld,  Field,  and  Feld.  Of 
the  De  la  Feild  family  were  the  Delafields  of  Fieldstown,  county  Meath,  from  whom, 
on  his  maternal  grandmother's  side  fa  Delafield  or  De  la  Feld),  is  descended  the  Rev. 
John  Beaufort  Berkeley  Barter,  M.B.I.A.,  F.E.G.S.I.,  F.R.H.  &  Arch.  A.I.,  F.R.Z.S., 
etc.,  of  Gtasthule  Lodge,  Kingstown,  county  Dublin,  and  British  Chaplain,  Turin, 
Italy.  The  De  La  Feild  family  originally  came  from  Alsace,  and  Vorarlberg  in  the 
Austrian  Tyrol.  A  branch  of  the  same  family  were  Counts  in  Westphalia,  and  Barons 
in  Pomerania — now  entirely  extinct.  The  Counts  De  La  Feld  of  Alsace  were  very 
famous  in  the  eleventh  and  twelfth  centuries.  They  entertained  Pope  St.  Leo  IX., 
■when  he  consecrated  Strasburg  Cathedral ;  were  great  benefactors  to  the  Church  ;  and 
•were  distinguished  Counts  of  the  Holy  Roman  Empire.  The  ruins  of  the  Castle 
of  the  Counts  De  La  Feld  of  Alsace  are  still  to  be  seen  ;  and  the  Vorarlberg  branch  of 
the  family  existed,  until  recently,  at  the  Castle  of  Feldkircher  in  the  Austrian  Tyrol. 
The  last  Count  of  the  family  that  we  had  any  knowledge  of  was  Count  John  Delafeld, 
who  was  married  to  a  daughter  of  the  Earl  of  Limerick.  He  is  mentioned  byDoddin 
his  Peerage  and  Baronetage  of  1857,  as  the  Rev.  Count  John  Dela  Feld,  and  as  married, 
to  the  above  named  lady. 

The  Rev.  John  Beaufort  Berkeley  Barter,  above  mentioned,  can  therefore  claim 
descent  from  King  Edward  the  First  of  England,  both  paternally  through  his  grand- 
mother  Elizabeth  Berkeley,  descended  from  Edward  I.  through  the  Lords  Berkeley, 
of  Berkeley  Castle ;  and,  maternally,  through  his  grandmother  Sarah  De  la  Field  orDe  la 
Feld,  descended  from  the  Delafields  of  Fieldstown,  who  interflaarried  with  the  ancient 
Earls  of  Ormonde,  and  through  that  marriage  brought  in  the  blood  of  the  Princess  Eliza- 
beth Plantagenet,  daughter  of  King  Edward  I.,  who  was  mar.  to  Humphrey  De  Bohun, 
Earl  of  Hereford,  Essex,  and  Northampton,  and  Hereditary  High  Constable  oi. 


;a  connection  chiefly  with  Bedfordshire,  and  is  derived  apparently  from 
the  "  Manenum  de  La  Hyde  juxta  Luton,"  in  that  county. 

In  the  Municipal  Archives  of  Dublin  is  preserved  a  vellum  folio 
volume  The  Roll  of  Dublin  Citizens,  in  which  occurs  the  following  entry : 
A.Bl226,msuhscriph  intraverunt  in  Gillemercaturam,  Roberto  Pollard  et 
retro  de  Ballimor  existentibus  prepositis,  Anno  regni  Regis  Eenrici  decimo;^ 
and  amongst  others  the  name  of  Rogerus  de  La  Hide.  In  1 220,  William 
Marshall,  Larl  of  Pembroke,  in  a  letter  to  Hubert  de  Burgh,  Justiciary, 
mentions  lands  held  "  Quodam  milite  nostra  Domino  Rogero  de  Hyda." 

In  1228,  the  King  granted  letters  of  protection  for  "  Roger  de  Hida, 
gone  to  Ireland  on  the  service  of  William  Marshall,  Earl  of  Pembroke." 

In  1243  John  de  la  Hyde  held  the  Manor  of  Ballymadun  ;  his  wife 
was  a  daughter  of  Walerand  de  Welesl^. 

In  1288,  the  King  granted  a  licence  to  the  Nuns  of  St.  Mary's,  of 
Hoges,  near  Dubhn,  to  elect  an  Abbess  in  the  place  of  Isolda  de  la  Hide, 

In  1335,  Walter,  Hugh  and  Nicholas  de  la  Hide  were  among  the 
Marchers  of  the  vicmity  of  Drogheda,  summoned  to  attend  John  D'Arcy, 
J  usticiary,  with  men  and  horses  into  Scotland. 

In  1344,  Walter  had  a  ^rant  of  the  Manor  of  Ballymadun. 
f^f  1361,  James  Dalahid  was  knighted  by  Lionel,  Earl  of  Ulster,  son

In  1515,  Ehzabeth,  Dowager  Countess  of  Kildare,  filed  an  article  of 
complaint  against  Gerald,  9th  Earl,  and  Delahide,  of  Moyglare,  Steward 
to  the  Earl.  Jb       j 

In  1528,  Sir  Walter,  of  Moyglare,  and  Walter  Wellesley,  of  Dangan, 
were  commissioned  to  treat  with  O'Connor  Ealy,  for  the  ransom  of  the 
Lord  Deputy,  who  had  been  seized  by  O'Connor. 

In  1533,  Christopher  was  Chief  Justice,  and  Richard,  Justice  of  Common 
f  ^Mj  f°^i  ^^^^  Eustace  (whose  sister  Alison  married  Gerald  8th  Earl 
of  Kildaie),  daughter  of  Sir  Rowland  Eustace,  Baron  of  Portlester,  was 
wile  to  Sir  Walter  de  la  Hide,  aforesaid,  and  foster  mother  to  "Silken" 
inomas.  She  and  her  sons  James  and  John  were  prime  movers  of  the 
l^eraldine  insurrection.  James,  cousin  to  the  Lord  Thomas  FitzGerald, 
was  his  Chief  Counsellor  in  all  his  doings  ;  and  was  included  in  the  Excom- 
munication pronounced  by  the  Chapter  of  Dublin,  against  him  for  the 
kilhng  of  John  Allen,  Archbishop  of  Dublin,  in  1534. 

In  1537,  James  and  his  brothers  John  and  Edward  (Parson  of  Kilbery) 
were  included  in  the  Act  of  Attainder. 

The  heir  to  the  Earldom,  Gerald,  a  boy  of  twelve  years,  was  entrusted 
to  the  care  of  James,  who  fled  with  him  to  the  youth's  aunt,  the  Lady 
Eleanor  FitzGerald  widow  of  MacCarthy  Reagh,  whereby  the  direct  line 
01  the  house  of  Kildare  was  preserved ;  and  accompanied  them  to  Donegal, 
when  she  went  to  be  married  to  Manus  O'Donnell,  in  1538. 

In  1585,  Laurence,  son  of  James,  was  by  Statute  restored  to  "his

ancient  blood  and  lineage."  In  the  British  Museum  is  preserved  a  warrant 
of  Queen  Elizabeth,  granting  divers  lands  to  Dame  Johann,  his  wife,  and 
her  son  Eichard,  who  married  Ismay,  8th  daughter  of  Sir  Christopher 
Barnewall,  of  Turvey;  their  son  Luke  had  seisin  of  Moyglare,  in  1615. 
Captain  Walter,  another  son  of  Laurence,  fought  under  Hugh  O'Neill ; 
and  subsequently  served  in  a. regiment  imder  Henry  O'Neill,  in  the  Low 

In  the  Cromwellian  Confiscations,  the  familj^  was  uprooted  :  the  name

€even  times  in  the  List  of  Forfeiting  Papist  Proprietors,  and  twice  in  the 
List  of  the  Transplanted. 

In  16G0,  D9n  Jorge  De  la  Hoyd  was  Captain  in  the  Spanish  Nether- 
lands ;  and  three  of  the  name  are  (see  the  "  Forty-Nine  Officers,"  ibid.)  on 
the  List  of  Officers  who  had  served  in  the  Royal  Forces,  in  1649.  Luke 
Delahyde,  son  of  Richard,  of  Castletown,  King's  County,  having  followed 
the  King's  Ensigns  abroad,  was,  in  1664,  Captain  in  the  Duke  of  York's 
tgoop  of  Guards  ;  and  petitioned  (in  vain)  to  be  restored  to  his  inheritance. 
Michael  Delahoyde,  Lieut.-Colonel  of  the  Earl  of  Westmeath's  Infantry, 
in  James  II.'s  Army,  was  slain  at  the  Battle  of  Aughrim,  on  the  12th

Herbert  De  Lamare,  or,  as  he  was  called  in  Irish,  Erebeirt  an  Muireach, 
(muireach :  Irish,  •'  a  sailor  or  mariner"),  was  considered  to  be  of  French 

He  came  into  Ireland  upon  the  first  invasion  thereof  by  the  English, 
and,  after  a  time,  was  made  governor  of  the  lower  borders  of  Meath,  now- 
called  "Westmeath,"  then  the  limits  of  the  English  conquests  in  that 
country ;  where  he  and  his  posterity  obtained  great  estates  and  possessions. 
This  Herbert  de  Lamare  was  the  ancestor  of  Delamere,  anglicised  Ddmore  ; 
after  him  the  Irish  called  his  descendants  MacEreheirt  ("  erebeirt" :  Irish,

William  de  Lamare,  son  of  Herbert,  lived  in  the  reign  of  Henry  the 
Third,  King  of  England  j  and  founded  the  Abbey  or  Friary  of  Multifarn- 
ham,  upon  part  of  his  possessions. 

John  de  Lamare  (or  Delamare),  son,  it  is  supposed,  of  the  aforesaid 
William,  built  the  strong  castle  of  Street,  in  the  territory  of  Maghbreacry, 
in  the  country  of  Annaly  (now  the  county  "  Longford"),  which  he  made 
his  chief  seat,  A.d.  129i  ;  and  so  continued  to  the  chiefs  of  his  posterity, 
until  their  estates  were  confiscated  by  Cromwell  and  his  adherents,  during 
the  ''Commonwealth."  In  the  same  year  (of  1294)  this  John  Delamare 
joined  with  John  Fitzgerald,  baron  of  O'Phaley  (now  "  Oflfaley"),  who  was 
afterwards  first  earl  of  Kildare,  in  a  great  quarrel  between  him  and 
Eichard  Bourke,  the  Eed  Earl  of  Ulster  ;  and,  by  his  assistance,  defeated 
and  took  the  said  earl,  and  committed  him  prisoner  in  the  Castle  of  Ley, 
■for  a  long  time.  After  the  year  1298,  the  said  John  Delamare  was  slaia 
in  an  engagement  with  his  Irish  enemies  of  Annaly.

As  members  of  this  family  intermarried  with  that  of  Purcell  of  Esker,  the 
Arms  of  the  Dillon-Purcell  family  are  here  impaled  : 

Arms :  Quarterly,  1st  and  4tli  argent,  on  a  bend  over  two  bars,  wavy,  gules,  three

This  noble  family,  according  to  "  Dillon"  (No.  1)  pedigree,  in  Vol.  I., 
and  to  Lodge  (see  Lodge's  Peerage,  Vol.  IV.,  p.  135),  is  said  to  derive  its 
origin  from  Lochan  or  Logan  Delune,  or  Delion  (a  descendant  of  one  of 
the  Monarchs  of  Ireland),  who  married  the  daughter  of  the  Duke  of 
Aquitaine,  and,  on  her  father's  death,  became  Prince  and  Sovereign  of 
Aquitaine.*     This   principahty  continued  in  his  posterity  until   King 

•  Aquitaine  :  The  history  of  these  events,  says  Lodge;  may  be  found  in  the  records 
of  Aquitaine,  now  in  the  Tower  of  London,  and  in  ancient  MSS.  in  Cotton  and 
Lambeth  Libraries.

Hecry  II.  married  Eleanora,  daughter  and  heir  to  "Williain,  Duke  of 
Aquitaine,  and,  about  A.D.  1172,  by  his  superior  power,  obtained  Aqui- 
taine :  upon  which  event  he  brought  over  to  England  the  two  male 
descendants  of  Lochan  DeHon,  viz.:  Sir  Henry  Delion  and  Thomas, 

The  said  Henry  Delion  (now  Dillon),  in  1185,  was  sent  into  Ireland, 
and  King  John  granted  to  him  there  MacCarron's  territory  with  part  of 
Annaly  and  other  vast  possessions,  to  hold  Per  JBaroniam  in  Capite,  by 
the  service  of  sixty  Knights'  fees.j  He  was  then  honoured  with  Knight 
hood,  and  by  this  tenure  (which  was  attended-by  a  kind  of  sovereignty) 
he  and  his  heirs  were  entitled  to  have  summons  to  Parliament  like  the 
ancient  Barons  of  England,  who  held  their  baronies  by  the  same  tenure. 
He  built  his  mansion-house,  with  a  Church,  in  Drumrany,  also  a  Castle 
in  Dunimony  ;  and  several  abbeys  (as  those  of  Athlone,  Holy  Island,  etc.), 
and  other  Churches  and  Castles.  He  was  progenitor  to  all  who  bear  the 
name  of  Dillon :  a  name  of  great  note  in  the  counties  of  Meath,  Westmeatb, 
Longford,  Roscommon,  Mayo,  and  other  parts  of  Ireland,  where,  and  in 
many  foreign  countries,  they  have  flourished  in  the  highest  departments  of 
Church!  and  State. 

Family  traditions  when  genuine  are  entitled  to  the  greatest  weight ;  they  are 
usually  based  upon  truth  while  erroneous  in  details,  and  their  very  errors  often  serve 
to  authenticate  the  story,  as  they  show  it  is  not  the  col  lection  of  a  mere  pedigree-maker 
putting  together  scraps  and  fragments  of  annals  and  chronicles,  and  then  dubbing  it 
a  family  tradition,  as  is  too  often  the  case,  and  is  indeed  here  instanced  by  the  silly 
tale  of  Lochan  Diluue,  The  rest  of  the  story  appears,  at  the  lirst  glance,  equally 
absurd.  No  such  events  ever  did,  or  could  have  happened  ia  Aquitaine.  For  Henry 
acquired  the  province  in  the  year  1152,  and  before  he  was  King  of  England,  and  it 
was  a  perfectly  peaceful  acquisition ;  in  history  there  is  no  trace  of  war  or  strife  of 
any  kind  on  the  occasion,  and  there  is  no  trace  of  such  a  name  as  Dillon,  Delion, 
Deloune,.  or  anything  like  it  in  all  Aquitaine.  If,  however,  we  turn  to  the  history  of 
another  of  the  numberless  provinces  at  that  period  annexed  to  the  English  Crown — to 
Brittany,  we  shall  find  the  tale  told  us  substantially  true,  and  the  error  to  lie  in  the 
Bubstitation  of  Aquitaine  for  Brittany,  and  that  in  the  latter,  the  name  of  De  Leon, 
or  De  Liuns,  according  to  the  orthography  of  the  English  Chrouicler  (see  Benedict

and  so  continued  until  the  reign  of  King  Henry  VIII. 

X  Church  :  Thomas  Dillon,  son  of  Sir  Thomas,  was  Bishop  of  Ossory ;  Thomas, 
son  of  Robert,  Lord  of  Drumrany,  was  Bishop  of  Kildare ;  Edmund,  his  brother,  waa 
Abbot  of  St.  Thomas,  near  Dublin.  They  lived  in  the  14th  century.  Arthur  Dillon, 
brother  of  the  10th  Viscount,  was  Archbishop  of  Toulouse ;  he  was  a  distinguished 
prelate  ;  died  in  London,  in  1806,  and  was  interred  in  Old  St.  Pancras'  Church-yard. 
Tlie  following  distinguished  themselves  in  the  State  and  in  the  Army :  Sir  Robert

Bench  and  Privy  Councillor  in  Queen  Mary's  reign.  Sir  Lucas,  his  son,  was  a  lawyer

of  Peterborough  passim),  was  already  ancient  and  well  known.  We  shall  find  in  the 
Breton  annals  and  records,  how  the  Barons  and  Seigneurs  of  Brittany  rose  in  arms 
against  Henry  II.,  when  under  pretext  of  the  marriage  of  his  son  Geofifrey  with 
Constance— the  Constance  of  poetic  fame — heiress  of  the  Duchy,  he  virtually  annexed 
it ;  how  the  De  Leons  were  the  principal  leaders  of  the  revolt ;  how,  overpowered 
and  crushed  by  the  might  of  the  Englisli  King,  they  at  last  submitted,  swore  fealty, 
and  gave  hostages.  We  are  not  expressly  told  that  some  of  the  hostages  were  of  their 
kin,  nor  of  their  ultimate  fate,  unless,  perhaps,  that  Adam  de  Leon,  the  Crusader  who 
died  at  the  siege  of  Acre,  in  the  retinue  of  Richard  Coeur  de  Lion,  was  one  of  them 
(see  Roger  de  Hoveden,  Bouquet,  V.  13).  Nor  are  we  told  that  any  of  them  were 
carried  beyond  the  seas,  and  finally  planted  in  Ireland,  the  last  of  the  King's 
acquisitions,  at  a  safe  distance  from  their  ancient  home,  but  we  may  quite  reasonably 
trust  a  family  tradition  tp  that  efifect,  which  is  so  well  supported  by  history,  and 
•whose  genuineness  is  in  fact  authenticated  by  the  very  error  of  locality,  which  proves 
it  is  not  the  concoction  of  a  genealogist. 

Dom  Labiueau  (History  of  Brittany,  p.  106)  tells  us  that  "The  House  of  the 
Viscounts  De  Leon  was  illustrious  from  the  tenth  century.  Even,  Lord  of  that 
country — the  terror  of  the  Normans— built  the  .town  which  was  called  after  him 
Liz-u-Even — ^that  is,  the  Court  or  Fort  of  Even.  Ekuara,  Viscount  De  Leon  after  him' 
was  the  father  of  Guihomar.  The  latter,  in  the  year  1021,  held  the  rank  of  Viscount 
De  Leon  (Chartulary  of  KemperM  and  of  Rennes,  pp.  98  and  130).  At  that  time,  in 
Brittany  and  Normandy,  it  was  the  highest  title  conferred— the  style  of  Count  be'ing 
reserved  for  members  of  the  sovereign  house — and  to  it  was  annexed  a  kind  of 
palatine  jurisdiction,  extending  over  a  large  territory.  He  was  succeeded  by  Marvan, 
Viscount  de  Leon.  His  successor  was  Guihomar  II.,  Viscount  de  Leon,  who  gave  to 
God  and  St.  Melanie,  and  to  the  Monks  thereof,  for  ever,  the  Church  of  St.  Mary  of 
Morlaix,  together  with  other  benefits.  He  was  slain  by  treachery  in  the  year  1103 
(see  Charters  of  DaouUas,  Lob.  Preuves,  p.  128;  and  Breton  Chron.  of  Nantes, 
Bouq.  xii.  p.  557).  Harvey,  Viscount  De  Leon,  was  his  son  and  successor.  He  was 
a  very  valiant  knight,  says  the  Chronicler,  and  fought  in  many  famous  battles  in 
England  and  in  other  places,  and  lost  an  eye  in  the  wars  (Guilelm.  Armoric.  Bouq.  xii.). 

Guihomar  III.,  Viscount  De  Leon,  his  son  and  successor,  was,  says  Robert  de  Mont^ 
"  one  who  feared  not  God  nor  man."  He  it  was  who  took  such  a  leading  part  in  the 
Breton  resistance  to  K.  Henry  II.,  as  has  been  already  mentioned.  On  his  final  • 
overthrow,  in  1178,  he  and  his  wife  Npbilia  departed  on  a  pilgrimage  to  Jerusalem 
(see  Robert  De  Mont,  Bouq.  xiii.,  p.  310).  In  1173,  he  together  with  his  wife  Nobilia 
and  his  sons,  urged  by  the  warnings  of  God,  founded  an  abbey  in  honour  of  Blessed 
Mary,  at  DaouUas,  and  for  the  maintenance  of  its  Canons,  and  for  the  remission  of 
their  sins,  they  bestowed,  in  the  presence  of  the  Bishop  of  Guimper,  various  gifts.  (See 
DaouUas  Charters,  Lobtn,  Preuves,  p.  128.) 

Guihomar's  successors  continued,  for  many  generations,  to  take  a  prominent  part 
in  the  History  of  Brittany ;  but,  towards  the  close  of  the  thirteenth  century,  the  last 
of  the  elder  line  being  encumbered  with  heavy  debts,  sold  the  Viscountship  and  the 
palatine  jurisdiction  attached  to  it,  to  Jean  le  Ronx,  the  then  reigning  Duke,  and 
they  remained  thenceforth  annexed  to  the  Duchy.  The  representation  of  the  family 
devolved  upon  the  De  Leons,  Seigneurs  de  Chateau-neuf,  and,  in  the  fourteenth 
century,  it  passed  by  a  female  heir  to  the  great  house  of  De  Rohan,  who  in  the  year 
1406  carried  on  a  great  suit  with  the  De  Vitr^'s  for  the  rank  of  premier  Pee?  cf  Trittc  ay 
in  right  of  the  "  Sirerie"  of  Leon.  ' 

Since  then,  the  De  Rohans  style  themselves  Princes  De  Leon  (see  Ibid.  Preuves, 
p.  458.  From  Rolls  in  the  Castles  of  Nantes).  It  is  noteworthy  that  the  armorial 
bearing  of  De  Leon  is  a  Lion,  and  that  a  cadet  of  the  House,  Seigneurs  de  Hacqueville, 
give  a  Lion  rampant,  within  a  bordure,  charged  with  annulets— the  very  coat,  with  a 
fesse  substituted  for  the  annulets,  borne  by  Dillon  of  Drumrany, 

The  junior  branches  of  this  family  were  numerous :  among  them  being 
the  Earls  of  Eoscommon,  Viscounts  Dillon,  Lords  Clonbrock. 

The  further  history  of  this  family  is  given  in  detail  by  Lodge  down  to 
the  year  1743,  of  which  the  following  is  a  short  summary,  concluding  with 
the  further  pedigree  of  the  family*  down  to  the  year  1887.

France  and  in  Eome  (where  they

son  of  Richard  by  his  second  wife ; 
studied   the   law  in    the    Inns   of

daughter    of    James    Nugent,     of 
Dysert,      Westmeath,      Esq.,     by 
whom  he  had  no  surviving  issue.

daughter    of    Pierce    Aylward,   of 
Ballynegar.     He   was   living   after 
1743,  and  by  the  said  Honora  (who 
died  in  that  year)  had— L  Richard ; 
2.  Aylward  ;  3.  Mary  ;  4.  Margaret. 
So  far  Lodge's  Peerage  (Vol.  lY., 
page  173)  which  says  that  this  par- 
ticular   branch    of    Drumrany    is 

totally  extinct,  or  fallen  to  decay. 
But  this  is  correct  as  to  the  male 
line   only;    in    the   female  line  it 
is^  represented  by  the   families  of 
O'Connor,  of  Milton,  Roscommon, 
and  of  Purcell,  of  Esker,  Kilkenny, 
as  we  shall  now  see.     The  sons  of 
the  said  Gerald,  dying  without  sur- 
viving issue,   Mary  and  Margaret 
became    co-heirs,    both    of   whom 
married  and    had  issue.      As    in 
this     family,      in     virtue     of    its 
feudal    tenure,  the  female,  in   de- 
fault of  male  issue,  inherited  the 
Barony  of  Drumrany ;  consequently 
Mary  and  Margaret  Dillon's  respec- 
tive issue  became  co-heirs   and  co- 
representatives     of    the    aforesaid 
Barons  of    Drumrany.      The   said 
Mary  Dillon  mar.  in  1749,  Thomas 
O'Connor,!  of  Milton,  Roscommon, 
whose  son  and  heir,  Roderick,  con- 
formed  to   the    (late)    Established 
Church  and  took  the  Oath  of  Su- 
premacy in  1760,  and  in  conformity 
with  the  Penal  Laws  then  in  force  in 
Ireland,  became,  as  Protestant  next 
of    kin,    possessed  of   the    whole 
property   of    Dillon's    Grove,    the 
Catholic  co-heir  being  disinherited.^ 
Margaret  Dillon,§  the  second  dau., 
and  co-heir,  mar.  her  first  cousin, 
Thomas  Dillon,  of  Kilbane,  Queen's 
County,  Esq.,  the  nephew  of  Gerard 
Dillon,  of  Dillon's  Grove,  and  had 
two  daughters.   The  eldest,  Arabella 
Dillon,  m.  Pierce,  son  of  Redmund

§  Purcell :  By  the  intermarriage  of  the  Purcells  of  Esker,  with  the  Dillons  of 
Drumrany,  this  family  has  had  to  suffer  fx'om  the  consequences  of  three  confiscations  : 
the  possessions  of  the  said  Dillons  and  of  the  Purcells  having  been  respectively  confis- 
cated ia  1652,  1653,  and  1691  ;  and  what  remained  to  the  Dillons,  as  Transplantation 
Zand,  having,  owing  to  the  Penal  Laws,  been  forfeited  in  comparatively  modern  times, 
viz.,  about  one  hundred  years  ago.  This  family  is,  also,  almost  the  only  Catholic 
Repi^esentative  of  the  ancient  families  of  the  Dillons  and  Purcells,  who  flourished  for 
several  centuries,  and  built  and  endowed  many  Churches  and  Abbeys  in  various  parts 
of  Ireland  ;  until,  owing  to  their  fidelity  to  their  religion,  to  their  King  and  country, 
they  lost  their  estates,  and  had  to  seek  an  asylum  in  Ei-ance,  Spain,  Austria,  and  the 
West  Indies,  in  which  countries  down  to  the  present  day,  there  are  many  families — 
some  still  dibtinguislied — bearing  these  names.

but  for  the  attainder  of  the  Third  Viscount  Baltinglass  by  Queen  Elizabeth, 
died  at  Brighton  in  1875.  His  father,  the  late  Rev.  Charles  Eustace,  of 
Robertstown,  eldest  son  of  General  Charles  Eustace,  M.P.,  having  become 
male  representative  of  his  family,  petitioned  the  Crown,  in  1839,  to  have 
his  right  to  the  Viscountcy  acknowledged,  and  the  then  Attorney-General 
(the  late  Lord  Chancellor  Brady),  having  investigated  the  case,  reported 
that  ^ "  the  petitioner  had  shown  sufl&cient  evidence  of  his  right  to  the 
dignity  of  Viscount  Baltinglass,  in  case  the  attainder  created  by  the  Act  of 
Elizabeth  were  reversed."  At  one  period  of  Irish  history  the  Eustaces, 
Barons  of  Portlester  and  Viscounts  Baltinglass,  were  amongst  the  most 
potent  nobles  of  this  kingdom,  and  possessed  a  great  portion  of  the  county 
of  Kildare.  Said  Charles  S.  Eustace  was  formerly  a  captain  in  the  army, 
and  in  later-  years  was  well-known  in  the  fashionable  circles  of  London. 
He  married  first,  1843,  Laura,  daughter  of  Christopher  Thomas  Tower,

Esq.,  of  Weald  Hall,  Essex;  and,  secondly,  in  1864,  Rosetta-Philippa, 
daughter  of  Lieutenant-Colonel  Cameron,  79  th  Highlanders,  and  grand- 
daughter of  Lieutenant-General  Sir  .Alan  Cameron,  K.C.B.,  but  left  no 
Issue.  His  nephew  and  senior  heir  of  line,  Lieutenant-Colonel  Robert 
•Jameson  Eustace  Robertson,  late  60th  Rifles,  succeeded  to  Captain 
Eustace's  estates,  and  was  enjoined  to  assume  the  surname  and  arms  of 
Eustace.  He  was  married  to  the  Lady  Katherine,  daughter  of  William, 
fourth  Earl  of  Dartmouth.  Colonel  Eustace  Robertson's  only  sister  was 
Mrs.  James  Jameson,  of  Airfield  House,  near  Dublin. 

Many  residents  in  Dublin  are  acquainted  with  the  singularly  beautiful 
ruins  of  the  Portlester  Chapel  at  the  east  end  of  St.  Audeon's  Church, 
High-street,  erected  by  the  first  baron  in  gratitude  for  his  preservation 
from  shipwreck  near  the  site.  A  tomb  said  to  be  that  of  the  baron  and 
his  lady  is  still  in  a  tolerable  state  of  preservation  there.  But  a  similar 
tomb  bearing  the  names  of  Lord  and  Lady  Portlester  exists  in  the  ruins  of 
New  Abbey,  near  Ballysax,  county  Kildare,  where  the  Portlesters  held 
large  estates.

An  exhaustive  and  able  disquisition  on  the  Irish  origin  of  this  name  may 
be  seen  in  the  eighteenth  chapter  of  the  third  vokime  of  Dr.  Lanigan's 
Ecclesiastical  History.  But  whether  the  Everards  are  of  Irish  or  Anglo- 
Norman  extraction,  Fethard*  must,  at  all  events,  be  considered  the  cradle 
of  the  Everard  family  of  the  county  Tipperary.  The  common  stock,  whence 
all  the  Everards  of  Tipperary  have  sprung,  is  described  by  Molyneux  as 
*'  Nicholas  Everard,  of  Fethard,  Esq."  (See  No.  1  on  the  "  Everard," 
No.  1,  pedigree.)  The  third  in  descent  from  the  said  Nicholas  was  Sir 
John  Everard  of  Fethard,  Knt.,  who  about  the  year  1600,  was  one  of  the 
leading  citizens  of  his  native  town,  and  subsequently  prominent  amongst 
the  foremost  public  men  in  Ireland.  On  account  of  his  great  legal  attain- 
ments he  was  surnamed  "  the  Lawyer."  He  was  appointed  Judge,  and  in 
the  discharge  of  the  duties  of  that  high  office  his  career  was  creditable  to 
himself  and  useful  to  his  country.  Trouble,  however,  overtook  him  in 
the  form  of  persecution  for  conscience'  sake ;  but,  having  "  great  repute 
for  honestie"  and  the  courage  of  his  convictions,  he  would  not  for  any 
consideration  acknowledge  a  doctrine  which,  in  his  heart,  he  beheved  to 
be  false.  He  refused  to  take  the  Oath  of  Supremacy,  resigned  his  position 
on  the  Bench,  and  fell  into  disfavour  with  those  then  in  power.  A  signal 
mark  of  honour  awaited  him  at  the  hands  of  his  Catholic  Countrymen. 
In  the  Irish  Parliament  summoned,  in  1613,  Sir  John  Everard  was  chosen 
Speakerfof  the  House  of  Commons.  A  full  account  of  that  memorable 
Election  is  given  in  the  "  Hihernia  Anglicana,"  where  in  a  very  interestino- 
narrative,  in  which  the  Author  of  that  work  repeatedly  sneers  at  Sir  John^ 
are  distinctly  and  faithfully  mirrored  the  disgraceful  and  lamentable  state 
of  things,  at  that  period  in  Ireland,  and  the  unhappy  relations  which  then 
existed  between  England  and  that  distracted  country.  The  secession  of 
the  "recusant^'  party  from  Parliament,  the  fate  of  the  deputation  of  that 
body  to  state  their  case  before  the  King  in  London,  its  reception  by  James  I., 
and  his  address  to  the  Irish  delegates,  are  matters  familiar  to  ordinary 
readers  of  Irish  History.     Sir  John;!:  had  three  sons,  and  a  daughter  who 

*  Fethard  :  This  is  the  anglicised  form  of  the  Irish  Fidh-ard  or  Fiodh-ard  which 
means  the  "high  wood."  This  ivood,  to  which  the  towu  of  "Fethard"  owes  its 
name,  was  the  property  of  the  (Tipperary;  Everard  family.  A  very  curious  reference 
IS  made^to  it  in  the  Will  (1624)  of  Sir  John  Everard,  Kuight,  in  which  it  is  described 
as  the  "  Oken  Grove."  And  it  is  equally  curious,  that  the  modern  name  of  the  hill

iiarton,  a  descendant  of  a  French  gentleman,  who,  years  ago,  purchased  the  property. 
when  the  descendants  of  its  former  possessor,  Richard  Burgh,  became  extinct  —

and  in  the  city  and  county  of  Waterford.  Sir  John  obtained  licence  to  hold  Courts

was  married  to  Henry  White,  an  ancestor  of  Lord  Dunally.  In  1661,  the 
male  descendants  of  the  eldest  son  of  Sir.  John  became  extinct  in  the  third- 
generation.  The  second  son  was  named  Eichard,  who,  a  few  years  before 
his  father's  death,  which  occurred  in  1624,  was  created  a  Baronet.  The 
provision  made  for  this  son,  in  Sir  John's  Will,  is  as  follows : 

"Item :  I  doe  apoint  that  my  son  Richard  shall  have  and  enjoy  all  my  purchased, 
lands  from  Sir  Patrick  Murray  in  Ciangibbon." 

Sir  Eichard  married  Catherine  Tobin,  daughter  of  the  chief  of  that 
name  in  the  neighbourhood  of  Fethard.  The  date  of  that  event  has  been 
preserved  by  means  of  the  gift  of  a  chalice  bearing  on  its  hexagonal  foot. 
the  following  inscription  : 

"  Ora  pro  animabus  D.  Richardi  Everard  et  Catharinae  Tobyn.    1627." 

In  the  little  church  erected  by  Sir  Eichard  within  the  walls  which, 
surrounded  his  castle  at  Shanrahau,  and  dedicated  to  the  Blessed  Virgin, 
that  sacred  vessel  was  used  in  the  celebration  of  the  Divine  Mysteries. 
In  the  course  of  time  their  marriage  was  blessed  with  a  son  and  two 
daughters.  From  the  Records  of  the  Rolls  it  appears  that  Sir  Eichard 
Everard,  "Knight  and  Barronett,"  was  a  very  extensive  proprietor  of 
land  in  the  barony  of  Iffa  and  Oflfa,  county  Tipperary.  To  him  belonged 
*'  the  manor,  castle,  town  and  lands,  of  Ballyboy  /'  "  the  manor,  castle, 
town  and  lands,  of  Shanraghin,"  and  several  other  places  around 
Clogheen.  Sir  Eichard,  in  1631,  lived  in  the  Castle  at  Ballyboy; 
close  to  which  was  the  magnificent  fortress  of  Fitzgibbon,  the  White  ^ 
Knif^ht.  About  this  period  Sir  Eichard  built  a  formidable  military 
stronghold,  which  was  in  the  form  of  a  parallelogram,  and  was  flanked 
at  each  angle  by  a  small  square,  tower.  This  was  the  favourite  residence 
of  the  family,  and  was  called  "Everard's  Castle."  This  Castle  stood  in 
the  midst  of  a  fertile  plain,  extending  from  the  foot  of  "Galt;,'j3g"  to 
Clogheen  ;  and  around  that  stronghold  were  one  thousand  acres  which, 
also°  belonged  to  Sir  Eichard.  The  manor  of  Everard's  Castle  was 
<'  erected"  in  1639.  With  the  War  (by  some  called  the  "Eebellion")  in 
Ireland  of  1641  came  great  and  endless  troubles  for  Sir  Eichard.  On 
that  memorable  occasion  the  Irish  were  the  Eoyalists  ;  the  English  in 
Ireland  were  the  an/z-Eoyalists  or  Puritans.  For  the  first  two  years  of 
the  War  Sir  Eichard  kept  aloof  from  both  parties ;  but  for  not  joining 
■with  them  the  "old"  Irish  took  away  from  him  "160  cows,  33  stud 
mares,  and  2,000  sheep."  The  tenants  on  his  Estate  were  sulyected  to 
similar  treatment ;  the  richest  of  whom  with  their  flocks  and  goods  Sir 
Eichard  conveyed  to  ''safe  quarters."  There  were  still  a  number  of 
families,  consisting  of  eighty-eight  individuals,  who  were  so  poor  as  to  be 
unable  to  remove,  and  these  notwithstanding  the  storm  that_  raged 
outside.  Sir  Eichard,  acting  on  the  defensive,  maintained,  at  his  own 
expense,  until  the  middle  of  June,  1642.  ^^  The  gentlemen,"  says  Carte,* 
'•  in  this  part  of  the  Kingdom  were  exceeding  careful  to  prevent  bloodshed

and  to  preserve  the  English  from  being  plundered  ;  several  instances 
maybe  given  thereof ;  but  few  deserve  better  to  be  particularized  than 
Sir  Richard  Everard,  Bart."  And  after  narrating  some  of  the  many  good 
deeds  of  Sir  Eichard,  during  that  stormy  period,  Carte  adds:  "There 
are  so  many  acts  of  horror,  cruelty,  and  inhumanity  necessary  to  be 
recounted  ija  the  history  of  these  times,  that  I  fancy  the  reader  will  be 
somewhat  relieved  by  the  relation  of  so  remarkable  an  instance  of  com- 
passion, tenderness  and  generosity  to  the  distressed." 

Later  on,  when  the  object  of  the  Catholic  Confederation  was  clearly 
known  and  defined,  Sir  Richard  readily  joined  the  popular  movement, 
and,  in  1G46,  was  one  of  the  Confederate  Catholics  who  sat,  in  what 
might  be  designated,  the  "  Irish  Parliament  at  Kilkenny."  Sir  Richard 
was  a  man  of  considerable  ability,  courtly  manners,  fine  personal  presence 
and  good  address,  and  was  much  esteemed  by  the  moderate  party  and  the 
Catholic  Bishops. 

Cromwell's  presence  in  Ireland  soon  put  an  end  to  the  deliberations 
of  the  Confederates  at  Kilkenny,  and  desolation  marked  his  progress 
throughout  the  land.  In  the  Spring  of  1650,  Cromwell,  on  his  way  from 
Youghal  to  the  siege  of  Clonmel,  took  and  burnt  Everard's  Castle  :  hence 
its  present  name  BunikourL  Nothing  daunted,  however.  Sir  Richard, 
■who  was  a  better  soldier  than  legislator,  and  whose  gallant  exploits  at 
this  time  rendered  him  very  popular,  offered  every  opposition  to  Crom- 
well's march  ;  but  he  was  ultimately  compelled  to  retire  to  Limerick,  where 
he  proved  himself  one  of  its  bravest  defenders.  A  fair  estimate  of  his 
great  services  in  the  interests  of  "  Creed  and  Country"  may  be  had  from 
the  fact  that  on  the  capture  of  that  city,  Sir  Richard  Everard  was  placed 
in  the  same  category  with  the  gallant  defender  of  Clonmel,  namely  Hugh. 
Dubh  O'Neill,  and  the  patriotic  Bishop  of  Emly,  the  Most  Rev.  Dr. 
Terence  O'Brien  ;  and,  like  them,  was  one  of  the  illustrious  band  of  twenty- 
four  Irishmen,  whom  Cromwell's  general  (Ireton)  sentenced  to  be  hanged  ! 

When  victory,  at  length,  declared  in  favour  of  the  arms  of  the 
Republicans  (or  Cromwellians,  as  they  were  called)  in  this  country  and 
in  England,  the  Adventurers  who  advanced  money  to  carry  on  the  war, 
and  the  officers  and  soldiers  who  took  part  in  it,  entered  on  the  possession 
of  the  estates  of  those  Irish  Lords  and  Gentlemen  who  were  amongst 
the  vanquished  Royalists.  Incredible  as  it  may  appear,  two  "pretended 
Adventurers,"  named  Cunningham  and  Dick,  had  the  audacity  to  seize 
on  a  great  portion  of  the  property  of  the  Everard  family  about  Clogheen. 
Amongst  others,  Sir  Thomas  Stanley,*  who  ranked  as  Colonel  in  Cromwell's 
army,  obtained  another  portion  in  that  quarter.  Sir  Redmond  Everard, 
who  was  a  distinguished  officer  amongst  the  cavaliers,  succeeded,  on  the 
death  of  his  father  Sir  Richard,  merely  to  the  title,  but  ^was  obliged  to

Proteataut,  and  appeared  a  loyal  subject  of  the  son  of  tliat  King  against  whom  he 
rose  in  rebellion.  And  although  it  was  manifest  he  was  no  believer  in  the  divine 
right  of  Kings,  and  no  friend  of  the  House  of  Stuart,  he  was  not  only  permitted  to 
retain  the  extensive  property  acquired  by  him  as  a  Cromwellian  officer,  and  from 
which  ^oya?  subjects  had  been  ejected;  but  be  obtained  from  Charles  II.  a  grant  of

observe  a  respectful  silence  regarding  the  new  settlers;  and  deemed  it 
prudent,  also,  to  keep  at  a  safe  distance  from  his  father's  property  during 
the  interregnum.  While  the  Protectorate  lasted,  Sir  Redmond,  like  many 
other  Irish  gentlemen,  found  himself  in  the  most  unenviable  and  straitened 
circumstances.  He  was  not  looked  upon  with  favour  by  the  Regicide 
Government,  because  of  his  exertions  to  sustain  the  tottering  House  of 
the  Stuarts.  For  above  a  decade  of  years  (1650  to  1661)  Sir  Redmond 
was  thus  obliged  to  be  content  with  his  lot,  till  the  death,  at  the  latter 
date,  of  tbe  last  of  the  male  members  of  the  eldest  branch  of  the  family 
(most  of  whom  had  probably  perished  in  the  previous  wars) ;  whereupon, 
Sir  Redmond  succeeded  as  "  next  heir," — not  to  the  Burntcourt,  but  to 
the  Fethard  Estates.  Now  that  Charles  II.  was  on  the  throne,  one  might 
expect  that  the  King  would  not  be  unmindful  of  his  Irish  friends  and 
supporters.  But  no  :  Sir  Redmond  among  them  was  forced  to  wait  for  a 
second  term  of  over  ten  years  (1661  to  1673)  before  regaining  possession 
of  his  father's  property ;  and  even  then  only  obtained  a  "  part"  of  same, 
as  appears  from  the  following  in  Patent  Bolls,  Ano.'  25  Charles  II. : — "  The 
lands  hereafter  mentioned  being  vested  in  the  King,  by  the  Act  of

provided  for  in  his  Majesty's  gracious  Declaration  for  the  Settlement  of  Ire- 
land, to  be  restored  to  his  estate  whereof  the  said  lands  are  part,  was  pleased 
to  restore  the  same  to  him  and  his  heirs,  pursuant  to  Privy  Seal,  dated  at

right  and  title  of  Sir  Redmond  to  continue  in  the  undisturbed  possession 
of  the  family  property  at  Fethard,  to  which  he  had  a  just  and  indisputable 
.claim  as  next  heir.    A  grant  of  one's  own  property,  or  a  Royal  Patent  to 

following  names  of  the  chief  places  of  note  embodied  in  thit  grant  will  give  an  idea  of 
its  extent :  Tickincorr,  Killganibegg  and  Killganimore,  Castlereagh,  Bar  Glenehery, 
Grangenagower,  Upper  and  Lower  Sillyheens,  the  town  of  Ballymacarbery,  the  town 
of  Clonnaffe  (Clonmel?),  Ardpaddan,  Ballydonogh,  Ballymachee,  Clogheen,  Castle 
Conagh,  &c.  (See  Inrolls.  24th  July,  1666.  18  Ch.  II.)  The  sword,  used  even  to 
the  present  day  by  the  Corporation  of  Clonmel,  was  the  gift  of  Sir  Thomas,  and  on  it 
appear  the  Arms  of  the  Stanley  family,  with  the  addition  of  a  mliral  crown,  and  the 
legend  *'  Ex  dono  Thomoe  Standly,  1656."  Sir  Thomas  was  an  ancestor  of  the 
Stanleys  of  Alderly,  Cheshire.

retain  it,  seems  at  present  rather  strange ;  but,  doubtless,  it  was  more 
intelligible  in  the  period  of  which  we  treat.  While  the  2,000  acres  which 
he  was  "  to  be  restored  unto,"  in  consideration  of  his  services  "  beyond  the 
seas,"  never  came  into  his  possession  up  to  the  moment  of  his  death  ;*  nor 
is  there  any  evidence  that  this  grant  of  land  became,  at  any  subsequent 
period,  the  property  of  any  other  member  of  the  family. 

Margaret,  the  youngest  daughter  of  Sir  Eedmond,  lived  in  Kilcash 
Castle,  and  witnessed  strange  vicissitudes  in  the  history  of  her  family  and 
country.  She  never  married.  Her  mother  was  of  the  Ormond  Butlers  ; 
and  it  is  curious  what  a  fascination  her  "  Kinsmen,"  the  young  Butlers, 
exercised  over  her,  if  we  judge  by  the  affectionate  language  and  substantial 
legacies  in  her  Will,  in  their  favour.  The  more  distant  and  poorer 
relations  of  her  own  name,  whom  perhaps  she  looked  down  upon  as 
"odious  approximations,"  were  passed  over;,  but,  unquestionably,  she  was 
much  indebted  to  the  Butlers  for  affording  her  so  safe  and  comfortable  a 
retreat,  when  Fethard,  under  the  new  regime,  became  too  hot  for  any  of 
the  name  of  Everard.  She  died  in  1753,  and  her  remains  were  interred 
*'  in  the  Vault,  at  Kilcash  Church." 

Sir  John  Everard,  Bart.,  of  Fethard,  son  of  Sir  Redmond,  was 
married  to  Ellen  Butler,  eldest  daughter  of  Pierce,  Lord  Cahir.  He  was 
Captain  of  the  regiment  of  Horse  commanded  by  Colonel  Nicholas 
Purcell;  was  present  at  the  Boyne ;  and  was  killed  at  the  battle  of  Aughrim, 
in  1G91.  He  was  one  of  the  attainted  officers  of  the  service  of  Kin"' 
James.  The  greater  portion  of  his  property  after  this  was  confiscated,  but 
a  miserable  remnant  passed  to  his  son.  Sir  Redmond,  and  certain  interests 
in  smaller  portions  were,  later  on,  allowed  to  Claimantsf  of  his  kindred. 
The  great  bulk  of  the  property  passed  by  sale  or  grants  into  strange  hands. 
This  Sir  Redmond  was  the  last  of  the  Baronets  of  the  family.  He  was 
married  and  had  no  issue.  He  lived  for  some  years  in  Fethard,  in  the 
Castle  built  by  him  opposite  the  family  mansion  from  which  he  had  been 
ousted  by  the  victorious  Williamite  soldiers.  This  "  new"  Castle,  situated 
on  the  bank  of  the  stream  "  Glashanly,";]:  is  now  a  ruin. 

In  the  Irish  Parliament  Sir  Redmond  represented  the  co.  Tipperary, 
in  the  early  part  of  the  last  century,  the  borough  of  Fethard,  and  the 
city  of  Kilkenny.  With  some  others  he  strove  to  prevent  the  Enactment 
of  the  Penal  Laws.  Finding  all  efforts  unavailing,  and  foreseeing  the 
inevitable,  he  left  the  country,  and  retired  to  France,  where,  in  1746,  he

dated  1624,  Sir  John  made  provision,  also,  for  his  son  Gabriel's  children, 
•whose  names  were  Geoffrey,  Joseph,  and  Charles.  He  bequeathed  to 
the  heir  of  Gabriel  property  in  the  counties  of  Tipperary  and  Waterford. 
In  his  Will,  and  in  KoU  V.  f.  27  of  "Decrees  of  Innocents,"  the  various 
townlands  so  bequeathed  are  mentioned.  Geoffrey  died  in  1642,  early 
in  life,  leaving  behind  a  son  James,  only  two  years  old.  The  minor's 
title  to  the  property  was  admitted,  but  "  the  profits  of  the  said  estate 
were  received  by  the  nearest  friends  of  Claimant,  until  the  lands  were 
seized  by  the  usurped  powers."  The  "nearest  friends"  were  Joseph* 
and  Charles  ;  but  the  former  having  renounced  the  world,  and  taken  the 
habit  of  the  Order  of  St.  Francis,  upon  Charles,  who  previously  had 
resided  in  Fethard,  devolved  the  management  of  the  estate  and  the 
charge  of  his  nephew.  Charles  lived  for  a  few  years  in  that  quarter  and 
was  married.  His  name  appears  amongst  "the  1649  Ofl&cers ;" _ and  a 
superb  monument  erected  to  his  memory  may  be  still  seen  in  the 
Churchyard  at  Churchtown,  co.  Waterford.  James  attained  his  majority 
in  1661,  and  lodged  a  petition  on  the  "  6th  Nov.,  14°  Charles  II.,"  against 
some  Cromwellian  settlers  who  had  taken  possession  of  his  property. 
l»fearly  two  years  after  he  succeeded  in  recovering  possession,  as  appears, 
from  the  following  decree  issued  on  the  11th  July,  16®  Charles  II. :" 

"  That  Claimant  be  restored  and  that  the  Sheriflfs  of  the  several  counties  in  which 
the  lands  lie  do  deliver  the  same  to  James  Everard." 

He  ranked  as  Captain  in  the  Irish  Army,  and  was  rewarded  for  his' 
loyalty  to  James  II.,  by  having  his  entire  property  confiscatedf  by 
William  III.  His  descendants,  it  is  said,  are  still  alive,  and  own  "  Chateau 
Everard,"  in  the  neighbourhood  of  Paris.  From  Charles,  the  grandson  oi 
Sir  John,  Knt.,  was  descended  Edmond  Everard,  of  Carrigmore,  Gent. 
(Will  Prerogative,  1755).  The  representatives  of  this  branch,  living 
(1888),  are  a  young  barrister,  Mr.  James  Power  Everard,  B.A.,  Athlone  ; 
and  Kev.  John  Everard,  K.  C.  Adm.,  Clonmel.  (See  the  "  Everard"  No.  1 
pedigree).  There  are  two  great  branches  of  the  Everards  of  Tipperary, 
both*"  deriving  their  origin  from  the  one  common  stock,  viz. — "  Nicholas 
Everard  of  Fethard,  Esq.,"  above  mentioned.

We  come  now  to  consider  the  second  and  probably  the  elder  branch 
of  the  family.  In  the  "Molyneux"  MS.  f.  iii.  27,  p.  43,  there  are 
recorded  six  generations  also  of  this  branch  of  the  Everard  family.  It 
is  rather  strange  that  the  pedigree  therein  given  ends  with  the  name  of 
a  female — Mary  Everard.  At  first  sight  this  is  misleading,  and  one 
might  suppose  that  the  male  members  of  this  line  became  extinct ;  were 
it  not  that  there  is  ample,  clear,  and  positive  evidence  to  the  contrary, 
The  writer  in  the  MS.  fixes  the  date  of  the  death  of  Mary's  father 
(Edward)  on  the  "  29th  May,  1637."  Now  it  so  happens  that  the  Will 
of  Mary's  grandfather,  who  was  also  named  Edward,  is  preserved  in  the 
Record  Office,  Dublin ;  and  in  it  the  date  of  that  Edward's  death  is  set 
down  as  occurring  on  the  "  29th  March,  1637."  No  doubt  of  the  authen- 
ticity or  accuracy  of  that  Will  can  for  a  moment  be  entertained,  and 
hence  we  incline  to  the  belief  that  the  writer  of  the  genealogy  in  the 
Molyneux  MS.  made  two  mistakes :  first,  by  placing  the  only  obit  recorded 
by  him  after  Edward  "  oge,"  the  father  of  Mary;  and,  second,  by 
confounding  the  contracted  form  of  March  with  May.  Anyone  who  has 
any  knowledge  of  such  matters  may  easily  conceive  how  readily  an  error 
may  be  committed  in  the  registration  of  a  pedigree.  The  wonder  is, 
considering  the  havoc  wrought  by  time,  the  missing  deeds,  the  erasures 
in  those  extant,  &c.,  &c.,  that  so  much  information  may  be  obtained.  It 
may  be  well  to  note  that  Mary  had  three  uncles,  and  that  her  grandfather 
states  in  his  Will  (29th  March,  1637),  that,  should  his  sons  die  without 
male  issue,  he  then  bequeathes  his  property  to  "  the  heyers  males  of  my  late 
deceased  father,  James  Everard." 

It  is  very  plain,  therefore,  that  at  that  time  there  was  no  lack  of  male 
representatives  of  this  branch  of  the  family.  Edward  (whose  Will  is  on 
record)  and  his  brother  Thomas  were  two  of  the  six  witnesses  to  the  Will 
(1624)  of  Sir  John  Everard.  In  that  Will  Sir  John,  in  the  most  praise- 
worthy spirit  and  manner,  makes  provision  for  his  poorer  "  Kinswomen," 
and  cannot  be  accused  of  being  unmindful  of  the  "  blood." 

It  may  be  truly  said,  that  in  every  generation  from  the  first  Nicholas 
of  Fethard,  there  has  been  a  host  of  male  and  female  members  of  this 
line.  Of  these  one  of  the  most  remarkable  was  James«Everard  of  Fethard. 
He  was  Mayor  of  his  native  town  when  it  was  stormed  by  Cromwell.  One 
of  the  sacred  vessels  used  to  this  day  in  the  Franciscan  Church,  Clonmel, 
was  the  gift  of  this  James.  He  died  in  1667,  and  his  Will,  bearing  that 
date,  is  preserved  in  the  Record  Office,  Dublin.  In  it  reference  is  made 
to  several  members  of  his  family ;  in  fact,  he  mentions  by  name  five  male 
members,  then  living,  and  also  speaks  of  his  cousin,  Sir  Redmond  Everard, 
Bart.  The  latter  acknowledged  the  connection  with  his  contemporaries ; 
for,  in  Sir  Redmond's  Will  (1687)  he  also  bequeathed,  in  certain  contin- 
gencies, his  property  "  to  the  heirs  males  of  the  said  Sir  John  Everard's 
great-grandfather.''  Now,  this  "great-grandfather"  was  the  oft-mentioned 
".Nicholas,"  who  was  the  common  stock  whence  James,  also  sprang,  and 
whom,  therefore,  as  "  head  of  the  house,"  Sir  Redmond  constituted  his 
heir.  James  had  a  brother  named  Redmond,  who  had  a  son  Edmond  :  this 
latt'er,  instead  of  Edmond,  the  son  of  Charles,  may  have  been  the  grand- 
father of  Edmond  Everard,  Carrigmore,  gent.  (1755).    And  George,  who 

198      EVE.  IRISH  PEDIGREES.  EVE.      [PART  V. 

■was  another  brother  of  the  above-mentioned  James,*  had  a  grandson  of 
the  same  name, — George,  junior,  who  had  the  ill  luck  of  having  a  brother- 
in-law,  James  Butler  (father  of  Eichard  Butler,  first  Earl  of  Glengall)^ 
who  seemed  to  have  not  much  regard  for  the  principles  of  justice.  (See 
Bill,  filed  21st  August,  1706.  "  Palatinate  Court,  county  Tipperary").  To 
this  branch  belonged  his  Grace,  the  Most  Eev.  Patrick  Everard,  Archbishop 
of  Cashel  and  Emly ;  who  was  born  in  Fethard,  and  was  there  taught 
Classics.  He  studied  in  the  Irish  College,  Salamanca;!  was  Rector  of  the 
Irish  College  in  Paris,  for  ten  years ;  next  became  Vicar-General  of  the 
Diocese  of  Bordeaux;  and  afterwards  conducted  a  School  at  Ulverstone, 
in  Lancashire,  England,  for  the  education  of  the  sons  of  English  Catholic 
Gentlemen,  in  which  the  Pension  ranged  from  £200  to  £400  per  annum. 
He  was  elected,  in  1810,  President  of  the  College  of  Maynooth;  and,  in' 
1814,  was  appointed  Archbishop|  by  the  Holy  See.  He  died  of  fever,  in 
Thurles,  and  his  remains  were  interred  in  Cashel. 

Lucas  Everard,  who  died  in  1665,  was  the  son  of  Marcus,  who  was  a, 
brother  of  Edward  (1637).  From  a  Bill  filed  in  "Palatinate  Court," 
county  Tipperary,  in  February,  1678,  it  appears  the  above  Lucas  had  a 
son  Christopher,  who  was  father  of  John  Everard,  of  Fethard.  From 
that  Bill,  also,  the  following  extract  is  taken  :  "  that  James  Butler  and 
his  wife,  taking  advantage  of  the  minority  of  the  said  John,  seized  upon 
his  property  in  and  about  Fethard,  and  still  keep  the  same."  Knaves 
were  encouraged  in  their  dishonesty  by  the  fact,  that  the  name  of 
"Everard"  was  in  very  bad  odour  under  the  new  Dynasty. 

The  above  John  Everard  of  Fethard  died  in  1712,  and  his  Will  of 
that  date,  has  been  preserved  in  the  Eecord  Office,  Dublin.  He  had  four 
sons,  but,  though  provision  is  made  for  the  "  Second,"  "  third,"  and 
"fourth"  son,  the  only  name  expressly  mentioned  in  the  Will  is  that  of 
Eichard,  the  "eldest."  One  (probably  Eichard)  of  the  four  sons  of  the 
said  John  Everard,  of  Fethard,  had  four  sons — 1.  John,  of  Clonmore, 
CO.  Tipperary,  whose  issue  is  extinct ;  2.  Eichard,  of  whom  presently ; 
3.  Patrick,  of  Eoscrea,  co.  Tipperary,  who  m.  a  Miss  Kennedy  and  had  a 
family,  all  of  whom  were,  in  1883,  living  in  America,  save  Martin  Everard, 
living  in  1883,  s.  p..;  4.  Philip,  also  of  Clonmore,  who  had  three  sons — 
1.  Thomas ;  2.  James,  who  emigrated  to  America  ;  3.  Patrick,  who  had 
a  son  who  was  living  (1883)  in  America.  This  Thomas,  son  of  Philip,  had 
three  sons — 1.  John  Everard  of  Clonmore,  living  in  1883,  who  was  m.  and 
had  a  family;  2.  Thomas  Everard,  m.,  living  in  1883,  and  had  a  family; 
3.  James  Everard,  who  m.  a  Miss  Leahy,  and  was  (1883)  living  in  Lough- 

*  James  :  This  James  had  a  son,  Piers,  of  Fethard,  who  was  a  distinguished  Irish 
Officer,  and  took  part  in  the  BattJe  of  Aughrim.  The  legal  documents  of  a  later 
period  refer  to  that  circumstance  in  very  guarded  terms:  "That  said  Piers  in  or 
about  the  year  1690  had  occasion  to  go  to  the  Province  of  Connaught  and  from 
thence  to  Limerick,  where  he  died." 

t  Salamanca:  It  is  a  remarkable  fact,  that  the  Four  Irish  Ecclesiastics  who 
studied  together  in  Salamanca,  were  afterwards  four  contemporary  Catholic  Archbishops 
iu  Ireland. 

X  Archbishop  :  When  Dr.  Everard  was  first  appointed  Archbishop  it  was  to  some 
see  "  in  partibus  infidelium,"  and  as  Coadjutor  to  Dr.  Bray,  Archbishop  of  Cashel  and 
Emly,  who  lived  for  a  few  years  after  Dr.  Everard's  promotion.

No.  4  on  the  "  Everard"  (No.  1)  pedigree,  it  is  stated:  "Concerning  my  purchased

Everard  and  Thomas  Everard  and  their  heirs  to  this  intent,  that  with  the  issues  and

The  Edward  and  Thomas  here  mentioned  were  witnesses  to  the  foregoing  Will  of 
Sir  John  Everard,  Knt.,  and  wrote  their  names  "Euerard." 

This  Edward  Everard,  of  Fethard,  eldest  son  of  James,  m.  A.  Sawse  (or  Swase), 
and  had  four  sons — 1.  Edward  Oge  (d.  29th  March,  1637)  who  mar.  Eliza  Power,  and 
had  Mary  ;  2.  Melcher ;  3.  Stephen  ;  4.  Ignatio.  In  case  his  sons  died  without  male 
issue,  he  bequeathed  his  property  (in  Will,  dated  1637)  "  to  the  heyres  males  of  my 
late  deceased  father,  James  Everard,"  etc. 

t  Anastace  :  This  Anastace  was  left  by  her  cousin  Edmond  Everard  a  fortune  of 
£400.  (Edmond  at  the  time  of  his  death  (a.d.  1632),  lived  at  Ballyboy,  near  Clogheen,. 
the  then  castle  of  Sir  Eichard  Everard,  Bart.,  whom  he  appointed  his  sole  executor). 

X  Living :  See  inscription  on  Chalice  in  the  Catholic  Church  of  Clogheen. 
Lucas  Everard  obtained  leases  of  farms  from  his  cousin  Sir  Richard  Everard,  Barfc., 
who  is  No.  5  on  the  "  Everard"  (No.  1)  pedigree  ;  and  (See  the  "  Records  of  Ireland") 
was  a  "  Royalish"  Officer,  a.d.  1649. 

§  James  :  After  bequeating  (in  Will  dated  1667")  his  property  to  his  own  "  heires 
males,"  this  James  further  adds,  in  case  they  "dyed"  without  "isshew  :"  "and  for 
want  of  such  to  the  next  by  birtiiright  of  my  kindred ;  and  for  want  of  such  unto 
Sir  Redmond  Everard,  Baronett"  .  .  .  "  Lastly,"  says  the  said  James,  "  I  doe  appoint

and  brother-in-law  Piers  Everard  (who  is  No.  7  on  this  pedigree),  his  executor  and 
also  his  heir. 

H  Bonaventura :  From  this  Bonaventura  was  descended  the  Most  Rev.  Patrick 
Everard,  who  was  the  second  -President  of  Maynooth  College,  for  several  years,  and 
afterwards  Archbishop  of  Cashel  and  Emly.  This  (Catholic)  Archbishop  Everard 
was  b.  A.D.  1752,  and  d.  1820.  It  was  he  that,  out  of  his  own  private  means,  founded 
the  present  College  of  St.  Patrick,  Thurles,  which  takes  its  name  from  him.

Charters,  and,  even  at  the  present  day,  the  family  has  many  representa- 
tives amongst  the  Gallic  Nobility. 

The  Viscounts  De  Latour  Maubourg  (from  whom  sprung  the  Princes 
D'Auvergne)  are  stated  "  to  have  assumed  their  sirname  from  the  Lord- 
ship of  Fay,  in  Picardy,  of  which  they  Were  possessed  at  least  as  early  as 
the  year  1000  ;"  while  the  Counts  Mauleveru,  the  Counts  De  La-Grange, 
the  Viscounts  De  La  Faye  De  Bourbonais  and  Du  Fai  de  Savernay, 
as  well  as  the  Irish  Branch  now  under  consideration,  appear  to  have 
assumed  theirs  from  the  Fief  of  Fay,  in  the  parish  of  St.  Honorine-Du- 
Fay,  in  Normandy,  which  was  possessed  by  the  family  at  an  equally 
remote  period. 

Du  Conge  suggests  that  the  local  name  "  Fay"  signified,  anciently,  a 
Beech  or  Oak-wood ;  and  the  Abbey  of  Silly,  which  was  situate  in  the 
great  forest  of  St.  Andre-en-GoufFerin,  near  Fallaise,  is  styled  indifferently 
in  ancient  documents  "De  Silvia,"  «'De  Bosco,"  and  "  De  Faya."  To 
this  Abbey  in  1202  Garinus,  Lord  of  Bello-Altari,  granted  certain  lands 
"  heretofore  held  by  W.  De  Mandeville,  Earl  of  Essex,  of  Robert  De  Fay, 
father  of  the  said  Garinus,  as  of  his  Fief  of  Bello  Altari." 

To  the  neighbouring  Abbey  of  St.  Andre-en-Goufferin,  Burgundian  Da 
Fay,  Lady  of  Harrier,  made  grants  of  Lands:  as  did  in  1225  Nicote,. 
sister  of  Eaoul  Du  Fay,  which  the  latter  confirmed,  "  as  dependant  on 
his  Fief  of  Fay,  in  the  parish  of  St.  Honorine-Du-Fay,"  while  Helie  Du 
Fay  made  a  similar  confirmation  to  the  same  Abbey,  of  lands  in  his  Fief 
of  Fay-du-Pre,  in  the  parish  of  Villy. 

The  first  of  the  name  we  meet  in  England  is  Radulphus  or  Ralph  De 
Fay,  or  De  La  Fay,  to  whom  Henry  11.  in  1154  granted  the  extensive 
Manor  of  Bromley,  in  Surrey.  He  held  until  the  19th  of  Henry  IT., 
when,  taking  part  with  Prince  Henry  against  his  father,  he  was  disseized, 
and  Bromley  was  granted  to  Baldwin  De  Bethune.  Afterwards  it  was  again 
escheated,  when  King  John  by  charter,  dated  at  Poitou,  4th  Dec,  1199, 
granted  it  to  Ralph  De  Fay,  the  son,  who,  with  many  members  of  his 
family,^  was  then  engaged  in  that  monarch's  service  in  France. 

This   Ralph   married    Beatrix,    sister    and   co-heir    of    Stephen    De 

of  Close  Rolls,  iu  Tower  of  London ;  MS.  Pedigrees,  in  Trinity  College,  Dublin  ; 

TLere  was  a  branch  of  this  family  seated  in  the  county  Kildare,  which  for  many 
generations  occupied  the  position  of  political  agents  and  confidential  trustees  to  the 
Earls  of  Kildare.  The  head  of  this  family,  Nicholas  Fay  of  Ballinure,  was  specially 
exempted  from  pardon  for  life  or  estate  by  Cromwell.  Another  branch  of  the  family 
was  seated  at  Trumroe,  in  Westmeath,  which  was  similarly  "favoured."  Both  these 
families  appear  to  have  recovered  some  part  of  their  estates  at  the  Restoration  ;  as 
George  Fay,  of  Jamestown,  in  the  Queen's  County,  mortgaged  Ballinure  in  1730 ; 
and  George  Fay,  of  Castlepollard,  whose  Will  is  dated  in  the  same  year,  and  preserved 
in  the  Registry  of  Deeds  Ofiice,  leaves  a  conditional  bequest  to  his  brother  Michael 
"in  case  I  (the  Testator)  should  hereafter  enjoy  my  estate  of  Tromroy ;"  a  condition 
of  hope  not  unusual  in  the  Jacobite  Wills  of  the  period. 

This  George  was  brother  of  the  gallant  Geoffrey  Fay,  Captain  in  Sir  Neil  O'Neil's 
Regiment  of  Horse,  who  gave  his  name  to  "  Fay's  Ford,'  on  the  Boyne,  and  who  was 
popularly  said  to  be  the  last  man  (aided  by  bis  brothers)  who  opposed  the  passage  of 
the  WilliamiteArmy.  Jeffrey  was  killed  at  the  Battle  of  Assanno,  in  Italy,  in  1714.

Turnham,  Seneschal  of  Poictou,  and,  dying  in  1222,  left  by  her,  who 
remained  with  Hugh  De  Plaiz— -John  De  Fay,  his  heir,  on  whose  death 
s.  p.  in  1241,  the  Manor  of  Bromley  passed  to  his  sister  Maud,  who 
married,  first,  William  De  Clere,  and,  secondly,  William  De  Braiose ;  and 
Philipa,  who  married  William  De  Neville. 

In  1215  King  John  commands  De  Podio,  Seneschal  of  Angoul^me, 
"  That  you  without  delay  cause  to  be  seized  into  our  hands,  the  land 
which  belonged  to  William  De  Mastad,  which  came  to  our  beloved  and 
faithful  William  De  Fay,  in  right  of  his  wife,  daughter  and  heir  of  the 
said  William  De  Mastad."  In  1215,  the  said  William  De  Fay,  and  Ralph, 
his  brother,  had  a  grant  of  land  in  Hampshire,  heretofore  the  estate  of 
Robert  De  Mandville.  In  the  same  year  King  John  granted  to  the  said 
William  De  Fay,  the  lands  of  Barrentin,  Roumare,  St,  Jean-du-Cardonett, 
and  St.  Agnes,  in  Normandy,  a  grant  which  was  subsequently  confirmed 
by  Philip  Augustus. 

In  1225,  William  De  Fay,  electing  to  remain  in  Normandy,  his  lands 
at  Polehampton,  Hampshire,  were  confiscated. 

In  1208,  King  John  confirms  to  "Peter  De  Fay,  our  Burgess  of 
Rochelle,  the  reasonable  gift  made  him  by  Ralph  De  Fay,  of  the  ofiice  of 
*  Baker  and  Pasturer'  of  Rochelle,  and  of  the  Hundred  Shillings  rent  in 
the  '  Miuages'  of  Rochelle,  and  of  Forty  Shillings  rent  out  of  the  house  in 
Rochelle,  wherein  Elias  Gasket  formerly  had  an  Exchange." 

The  first  mention  of  the  name  which  we  have  discovered  in  Ireland, 
is  in  1219,  when  Sir  Richard  De  Fay,  Knight  of  De  Lacy,  Lord  of  Meath, 
was  sent  by  the  latter  on  a  mission  to  the  King. 

About  this  time,  Richard  De  Fay  was  seized  of  Mayneston,  in  Hereford- 
shire, which  he  held  of  the  Lord  John  De  Monmouth,  by  ancient 
enfeoffment.  In  1220,  Richard  and  Walter  De  Fay  witness  charters  of 
the  De  Monmouth  family,  of  which  House,  we  may  here  observe,  was 
Rosa  De  Monmouth,  the  first  wife  of  Hugh  De  Lacy,  the  "  Conqueror"  of 

In  1281,  the  King  notifies  that  Richard  De  Fay,  remaining  in  Ireland, 
by  the  King's  Licence,  had  attorned  before  him,  Geoffreys  Te  Ireys,  and 
Richard  De  Pickeyleigh.  (Pickeyleigh  adjoins  Maynestown  in  all  pleas  and 
plaints  in  England.) 

In  1289,  Theobald  Le  Verdon,  Lord  of  the  Western  moiety  of  Meath, 
had  a  suit  with  Richard  De  Fay,  concerning  the  lands  of  Tyrlicken,  or 
Tyrkillen,  in  that  county.  During  the  course  of  the  proceedings  it  was 
expressly  stated,  "that  De  Fay  was  then  abroad  in  the  King's  wars." 

In  1290,  George  De  Fay  was  seized  of  premises  in  Kilmer,  Donore, 
and  Glackmorne,  in  the  Liberty  of  Trim,  in  right  of  his  wife  Isabella, 
daughter  of  Richard  Fitz  John,  the  fifth  Baron  of  Delvin.  In  1339, 
Walter  Fitz  George  De  Fay  had  a  suit  with  his  grandmother,  Eglantine, 
widow  of  Lord  Delvin,  concerning  the  above  lands,  which  she  claimed  as 
daughter  and  heir  of  William  Deweswell,  of  Deweswellstown,  co.  Dublin, 
and  Kilmer,  co.  Meath. 

Shortly  after  this,  John  Engelande  (a  trustee)  conveyed  to  Richard 
Fitz  George  De  Fay,  the  estate  of  Comerstown,  in  the  Barony  of  Fore,  and 
of  Mayestown,  in  the  Barony  of  Moyashell,  in  Tail  Male;  with  remainder 
to  Roger  De  Fay — which  Roger  De  Fay  succeeded ;  and,  dying  before

1380,  was  seized,  inter  alios,  of  Comerstown,  BalUndrinan,  and  Bartcmstown* 
In  1384,  his  son,  John  Fitz  Roger  Fay  of  Dernegara,  was  Plaintiff  in  a 
suit  at  Trim  against  George  Fitz  Walter  Fay  and  Philip  Tuite,  for 
having  unlawfully  disseized  him  of  the  above  lands,  and  a  verdict  was 
given  in  his  favour  ;  whereupon,  the  said  George  Fitz  Walter  appealed,  on 
the  grounds  that  the  Jury  who  tried  the  case  had  not  been  fairly- 
impanelled,  "  by  reason  that  Thomas  Chamber,  the  Sheriff,  had  taken  to 
wife  Anne  Dardis,  cousin  of  the  said  John  Fay."  Thereupon  a  new  Jury 
was  ordered  to  be  impanelled,  by  the  Keeper  of  the  King's  Pleas,  which 
confirmed  the  verdict  of  the  first, — mitigating,  however,  the  damages 
against  George  Fitz  Walter  Fay,  "by  reason  of  his  minority." 

In  1465,  the  Crown  having  raised  some  question  as  to  the  title  of 
James  Fay  (son  and  heir  of  John  Fitz  Roger)  to  the  Comerstown  estate, 
he  proved  it  (under  the  conveyance  made  by  John  Engelande  above  cited) 
in  a  Parliament  held  in  Trim  in  that  year,  in  Drogheda  in  1468,  and  in 
Dublin  in  1469.  He  complains  bitterly  at  being  harassed,  by  this  inquiry 
"that  his  lands  were  situate  on  the  Marches,  and  that  he  had  great 
trouble  defending  them  against  his  own  and  the  King's  enemies."  This 
James,  it  is  presumed,  was  father  of  George  Fay,  who  died  in  1514, 
seized  of  Comerstown  and  Dernegara,  as  appears  from  an  Inquisition  po&t 
mortem,  taken  at  Duleek  in  that  year ;  and  from  whom  the  Pedigree  is 
carried  down  to  the  present  day,  as  follows  : 

1.  George  Fay  of  Dernegara,  in 
Westmeath,  born  1435,  died  May, 
1514,  leaving  Gerald,  his  son,  then 
aged  40 ;  and  married,  as  appears 
from  an  Inquisition  post  mortem, 
taken  at  Ratoath. 

2.  Gerald  Fay  of  Dernegara,  who 
was  engaged  in  the  rebellion  of 
"Silken  Thomas ;"  and,  dying  in 
1548,  was  succeeded  by  his  son  : 

3.  Gerald  Fay  of  Dernegara,  then 
aged  40,  and  married  to  Joan  Fitz- 
gerald, by  whom  he  had  George, 
James  of  Comerstown,  and  Chris- 
topher. He  was  Sheriff  of  West 
Meath  in  1565,  and  died  1576. 

4.  George  of  Dernegara,  son  of 
Gerald,  died  vita  Patris,  leaving  by 
Mary  Fitzgerald,  his  wife,  four  sons 

— 1.  Gerald,  2.  George,  3.  Redmond 
(all  of  whom  died  s.  p.),  and  4.

George ;  married  Margery  Nugent, 
by  whom  he  had  an  only  son 
Edward;  and,  dying  Nov.,  1627,  was

House,  and  Dernegara :  son  of 
Meyler  ;  married  Eliza,  daughter  of 
Theobald  Nugent,  Esq.,  of  New 
Haggard  (by  Mary,  daughter  of 
Nugent,  of  Carlanstown,  ancestor 
of  the  extinct  Earl  Nugent).  By 
this  lady,  Edward  had  six  sons — 1. 
Garret,  who  left  issue,  Anne,  who 
married   Nicholas,   brother   of  the 

*  Bartamtown  :  On  the  17th  of  May,  16S0,  Garret  Fay  of  Dernegara,  filed  a  Bill 
in  Chancery  against  his  youngest  brother  Thomas,  for  having  entered  into  possession 
of  Comerstown,  'BalUndrinan,  and  Bartanstown.  The  latter  was  thereupon  baiidd  in 
the  sum  of  £1,000  by  Richard  Barnewall,  Darby  Dunn,  Michael  Hall  and  Nicholas 
Bamewall,  all  of  the  city  of  Dublin.  From  his  grandson,  and  namesake,  Thomas  Fay 
of  Annsbrook,  and  Mayo  House,  county  Meath,  who  settled  in  Cavanin  1780,  descend 
the  Fays  of  Faybrook  and  Moyne  Hall,  in  that  county.

The  following  is  the  pedigree,  as  deduced  from  the  Linea  Antigua,  and 
other  authentic  sources : 

1,  Otho  Geraldino,  according 
to  the  "Battle  Abbey  Book,"  came 
into  England  from  Normandy  with 
William  the  Conqueror,  and  was 
one  of  his  chief  commanders  ;  and, 
according  to  Sir  William  Dugdale's 
*'  Baronage  of  England,"  was,  in 
the  sixth  year  of  the  reign  of  that 
king,  created  a  baroo.  This  Otho 
Geraldino  had  two  sons,  named 
Waltero  and  Robert :  Waltero  was 
ancestor  of  all  the  Fit'zgerakls  of 
Ireland,  and  of  all  the  barons  of 
Windsor  until  the  issue  male  became 
extinct,  and   came  by  marriage  to 

Hickman,  formerly  Lord  Windsor; 
and  Robert  was  ancestor  of  the 
ancient  family  of  Gerard,  formerly 
barons  of  Stamwell. 

2.  Waltero  Geraldino. 

3.  Gerald,  from  whom  the  sir- 
name  of  "  Geraldine"*  was  changed 
to  Fitzgerald. 

4.  Maurice  Fitzgerald  first  as- 
sumed this  sirname ;  he  was  one  of 
the  first  and  principal  invaders  of 
Ireland,  where  he  landed  in  the 
sixteenth  year  of  the  reign  of  King 
Henry  the  Second,  A.D.  11G9.

Geraldine : 
These  Geraldines !  these  Geraldines ;  rain  wears  away  the  rock, 
And  time  may  wear  away  the  tribe  that  stood  the  battle  shock  ; 
But,  ever  sure,  while  one  is  left  of  all  that  honoured  race. 
In  front  of  Ireland's  chivalry  is  that  Fitzgerald's  place ; 
And,  though  the  last  were  dead  and  gone,  how  many  a  field  and  town^ 
From  Thomas-Court  to  Abbeyfeale,  would  cherish  their  renown, 
And  men  woiild  say  of  valour's  rise,  or  ancient  power's  decline, 
**  Twill  never  soar,  it  never  shone,  as  did  the  Geraldine."

he  joined  the  famous  Hugh  O'Neill 
in  his  war  against  Queen  Elizabeth, 
and  by  him  was  created  an  "  Earl." 
Hence  was  he  called  the  Sugan  Earl, 
which  means  "  Earl  of  Straw,"  be- 
cause the  title  was  not  conferred  or 
recognised  by  the  English  authori- 
ties in  Ireland.  The  Desmond 
Pedigree  states  of  him:  "  Apart  from 
the  matter  of  his  rebellion,  he  ever 
proved  himself  an  honourable, 
truthful,  and  humane  man."  Cox 
says  that  this  James,  who  was  son 
of  Thomas,  brother  of  Gerald,  the 

that  valuable  Journal,  for  January,  1880,  is  also  inserted  an  interesting  paper  relating 
to  "The  Geraldines  of  Desmond."  While  the  writer  of  that  paper  relies  on  the 
accuracy  of  that  portion  of  our  Annals  which  relates  to  the  Geraldine  family,  he  treats 
as  myths  those  portions  of  the  Auuals  which  relate  to  the  early  inhabitants  of  Ireland. 
He  says :  "  Had  they  (our  ancient  Irish  annalists)  understood  that  .  .  .  our  island 
home  was  at  one  time  an  integral  part  of  the  European  continent,  they  might  have 
spared  us  their  myths  about  its  aboriginal  inhabitants."  But,  had  the  worthy  writer 
of  that  paper  made  himself  more  fully  conversant  with  the  *'  teachings  of  geology"  to 
which  he  alludes,  he  would  find  that,  for  the  period  when  Ireland  was  an  integral 
part  of  the  European  continent,  we  must  go  much  farther  back  into  the  past  than  the 
Mammal  period  of  the  Creation  !— See  pp.  1  2,  of  Vol.  I.  of  this  Edition.

16th  Earl,  was  one  of  the  handsomest 
men  of  his  time.  Though  thrice  m., 
he  left  no  descendants.  His 
brother  John  went  to  Spain  in  1603, 
where  he  was  styled  "Conde  de 
Desmond;"  he  was  living  in  1615, 
and  died  at  Barcelona.  This  John 
had  a  son  named  Gerald,  who,  in 
1632,  died  in  the  service  of  his 
*'Csesarian  Majesty." 

Thomas,  tenth  Earl  of  Ormond, 
in  right  of  his  mother  Joan  Fitz- 
gerald, daughter  of  the  twelfth  Earl 
of  Desmond,  claimed  the  Earldom 
after  the  death  and  attainder  of  all 
the  heirs  male.  When  his  daughter 
■was  married  to  King  James  the 
First's  Scotch  favourite.  Sir  Richard 
Preston,  the  title  of  "Earl  of  Des- 
mond" was  conferred  on  him.  When 
the  only  child  of  Sir  Richard 
Preston,  a  daughter,  was  about  to 
be  married  to  the  son  of  the  Earl  of 
Denbigh,  the  title  was  passed  to  the 
intended  bridegroom.  Although  the 
marriage  never  took  place,  yet  the 
title  was  retained,  and  is  still  held 
by  the  Earls  of  Denbigh.

Colonel  Christopher  Fleming,  the 
23rd  Lord  Slane,  was  son  of  Eandal, 
who  was  conspicuous  for  his  loyalty 
to  Charles  I.,  during  the  Common- 
wealth rule  in  Ireland ;  and  said 
Christopher  was  no  less  faithful  to 
the  cause  of  King  James  IL  He 
sat  as  one  of  the  Peers  in  James's 
Irish  ParHament,  in  1689 ;  com- 
manded a  family  regiment  in  his 
service ;  and  with  it  fought,  during 
the  Revolutionary  war,  at  Derry, 
the  Boyne,  and  Aughrim  where  he 
was  taken  prisoner.  He  was,  of 
course,  attainted  by  the  Williamite 
party,  and  his  estates,  which  were 
valued  at  £25,000  a  year,  were  for 
most  part  granted  by  King  William, 
to  De  Ginkel,  the  victor  of  Aughrim; 
his  wife,  the  Lady  Slane,  getting 
only  £200  a  year  out  of  them  during 
her  husband's  life,  and  £800,  a  year, 
at  his  decease. 

Released  from  prison,  Lord  Slane 
followed  the  exiled  King  James  to 
France,  where  he  resided  in  poverty 
till  1708,  when,  considering  himself 
badly  used  by  the  Jacobite  Court, 
he  returned  to  England.  Queen 
Anne  is  said  to  have  restored  him  to 

his  honours,  but  not  to  his  estates. 
He  was,  however,  allowed  a  pension, 
of  £500  a  year,  and  a  regiment  on 
the  Irish  Establishment.  In  1713, 
he  was  advanced  to  the  dignity  of 
"ViscountLongford,"  but,  according 
to  Dalton,  no  patent  issued.  He  died 
in  1726,  and  was  buried  in  the  tomb 
of  the  MacDonnells,  Earls  of  An- 
trim, in  the  Abbey  of  Bonnamargy 
(with  which  family  he  was  connected 
by  blood),  leaving  an  only  daughter 
Helen,  who  died  in  Paris,  on  the 
7th  August,  1748,  unmarried.  And 
so  ended  the  line  of  the  Barons  of 
Slane,  in  the  case  of  the  above 
mentioned  Colonel  Christopher 
Fleming,  Lord  Slane. 

The  title,  however,  appears  to 
have  been  kept  up  for  a  short  time 
longer  by  his  brother  Henry  (wha 
was  a  Colonel  in  Galmoy's  horse), 
and  by  Henry's  descendants,  'this 
Henry  had  a  son  William  (d.  1747), 
who  had  a  son  Christopher,  wha 
d.9.  p.  in  1772. 

Playfair  (Pur.  Ixxv.)  says  that 
Richard  Fleming,  of  Slahalmack, 
was  the  second  son  of  the  last  Baron 
of  Slane.  In  consequence  of  the 
last  Baron's  decease  without  male 
issue,  and  the  Barony  being  held  by 
tenure,  the  title  descended  to  his 
daughter  Bridget.

ancestors,  a  Knight  Crusader,  accompanied  Eichard  Coear  de-Lion  to 
Palestine,  in  his  expedition  against  the  Saracens,  and  was  placed  in  com- 
mand of  a  small  outpost  of  the  Christian  army.  Whilst  occupying  this 
position,  the  said  Knight  was  closely  invested  by  the  Saracens,  and,  after 
many  days  hard  fighting,  he  was  on  the  point  of  being  obliged  to  surrender, 
when  the  timely  arrival  of  King  Richard  hy  loater,  saved  the  small  Christian 
garrison.  In  remembrance  of  this  event  the  Knight  Crusader  obtained 
permission  to  take  for  his  Crest  the  royal  lion  of  Cceur  de  Lion,  rampant, 
holding  in  his  paws  a  scollop  shell,  indicating  a  Crusader ;  and  adopted  for 
his  Motto — Auxilium  ex  oceano  (or  aid  from  the  deep) :  signifying  the  means 
(across  or  out  of  the  water)  by  which  he  was  delivered  from  the  Saracens. 

Traditional  history  is  not  always  very  precise,  and  in  this  instance  the 
name  of  the  town  or  outpost  occupied  by  our  Knight  Crusader  is  not 
mentioned;  but  an  historical  confirmation  of  this  tradition  is  given  in 
Lingard's  History  of  England,  under  a.d.  1192,  where  it  is  said  that  the 
outpost  occupied  by  a  portion  of  the  Christian  army  was  the  town  of  Jaffa, 
which  was  taken  by  the  Saracens,  and  the  defenders  were  driven  to  the 
citadel.  At  the  first  intelligence  of  this  event,  King  Richard  ordered  a 
portion  of  his  army  to  move  by  land,  while  he  hastened  by  sea,  in  galleys. 
On  his  arrival  before  the  town  of  Jaffa,  King  Richard,  in  his  anxiety  to 
relieve  the  besieged  garrison,  plunged  into  the  ivater,  followed  by  his  com- 
panions. The  Saracens  retired  at  the  approach  of  his  army,  and  the 
besieged  Christians  were  thus  saved.

families  iu  the  county  Mayo,  namely,  those  of  Blake,  O'Donnell,  Bingham, 
Nash,  and  Carter.

Rebellion  of  1798,  and  accepted 

a  Commission  of  Captain  in  the 
French  Army,  from  General 
Humbert;  he  was  in  conse- 
quence attainted,  but  event- 
ually escaped  to  America,  where 
his  descendants  now  live.  His 
eldest  son  John  died  at  Inver 
House,    Erris, 



*  Thomas  :  In  the  lifetime  of  this  Thomas  the  penal  laws  prohibited  Catholics 
from  holding  landed  property  in  Ireland.  In  order  to  protect  himself  from  confiscation, 
he  got  Mr.  Charles  Nash,  a  Protestant  landowner  and  a  neighbour,  to  become  the 
nominal  owner  in  trust  of  the  Inver  estate,  and  thus  said  Thomas  succeeded  in  handing 
down  to  his  sons,  Peter  and  Richard,  a  portion  of  the  property,  which  they  afterwards 
lost  consequent  on  the  Irish  Rebellion  of  1798. 

t  Peter  :  This  Peter  was  captured  by  the  English,  and  a  court-martial  passed 
sentence  of  death  on  him  ;  but  in  woman's  clothes  he  escaped  from  prison,  and  sailed 
for  America.  A  remarkable  instance,  however,  of  his  innocence  of  active  complicity 
in  the  Rebellion  was,  that  the  president  of  the  court-martial  which  tried  him  refused 
to  pass  the  sentence,  saying  that  he  "  would  eat  his  sword"  before  he  would  sentence

In  the  "  Roberston"  genealogy  (pp.  769,  Vol.  I)  the  descent  of  this  family 
is  clearly  traced  from  Malcolm  HI.,  King  of  Scotland,  down  to  Andrew 
Roberston,  Provost  of  Dingwall,  who  was  the  maternal  grandfather  of 
(amongst  other  children)  the  Right  Hon.  William  Ewart  Gladstone,  of 
Hawarden,  in  Flintshire,  M.P.,  and  First  Lord  of  the  Treasury,  in  1886. 
Thissirname  was  originally  Gledstaine  ("Gleadh:"  Irish,  tricks,  humour) 
' '  stain  :"  tin  or  latten),^  and  was  more  lately  rendered  Gladstones.  It  was 
the  father  of  the  Premier  that  first  omitted  the  final  5  from  the  name,  and 
wrote  it  Gladstone.  In  the  male  Une,  so  far  as  we  can  trace  it,  the  genealogy 
of  the  family  is,  as  follows  r

that  omitted  the  final  s  in  his 
name.  Sir  John  was  twice  married :

the  ancestor  of  Grace,  in  the  county  Kilkenny. 

Sir  John  le  Gros  (surnamed  Crios  iarann,  or  *'  the  iron-belted")  was 
Baron  of  Courtstown  and  lord  of  "  Grace's  Country,"  in  the  county  Kil- 
kenny, and  was  living  in  1534.  He  married  Catherine,  daughter  of  Pierce, 
Lord  Le  Poer,  of  Curraghmore,  county  Water  ford,  and  had  two  sons : 
1.  John,  who  was  the  ancestor  of  the  senior  or  Barons  of  Courtstown  branch 
of  the  family  ;  and  2.  Sir  Oliver,  Knight,  of  Ballylinch  and  Legan  Castles, 
county  Kilkenny,  who  was  Lord  of  Carney,  Tipperary,  tfnd  M.P.  for  that 
county  in  1559.  From  said  Sir  Oliver  descended  the  Grace  families  of 
Shanganagh  (or  Gracefield)  in  the  Queen's  County ;  and  that  of  Mantagh 
(or  Mantua),  near  Elphin,  in  the  county  Roscommon. — See  "  Grace," 
No.  3. 

we  have  taken  the  following  stanza,  which  bears  testimony  to  that  lady's  amiable 
disposition : 

"  Whenever  the  worthless  annoy'd  her, 
She'd  pity  the  wretch  and  forgive  ; 
And  she  lovingly  did  good  for  evil, 
To  show  us  the  true  way  to  live. 
From  her  ardour  to  make  others  happy. 

Did  her  own  gentle  happiness  flow, 
And  where  she  found  wretches  in  trouble 
She  took  a  full  share  of  their  woe."

Sir  Oliver  Grace,  younger  son  of  Sir  John  le  Gros  who  (see  the 

*  Rohert :  Colonel  Richard  Giace,  the  younger  son  of  Robert  Grace,  Baroq  of 
Conrtstown,  was  born  in  the  early  part  of  the  17tb  century.  He  resided  at  Moyelly 
Castle,  Queen's  County,  and  served  King  Cbarles  I.,  in  Eugland,  until  the  surrender 
of  Oxford,  in  1646  ;  he  then  returned  to  Ireland,  and  was  for  some  years  engaged  in 
the  war  of  164I-1G52.  He  is  referred  to  in  State  Fapers  as  being  at  the  head  of  3,000 
men,  harassing  the  Parliamentary  troops — now  in  Wicklow,  and  again  beyond  the 
Shannon.  In  1652  a  reward  of  £300  was  by  the  English  Government  set  upon  his 
head  ;  yet,  at  the  conclusion  of  the  war,  he  was  permitted  to  enter  the  Spanish  service 
with  1,200  of  his  men.  After  the  Restoration  he  was  appointed  Chamberlain  to  the 
Duke  of  York.  When  James  II.  came  to  Ireland,  Grace  was  appointed  Governor  of 
Athlone,  with  a  garrison  of  three  regiments  of  foot,  and  eleven  troops  of  cavalry.  After 
the  battle  of  the  Boyne,  Athlone  was  invested  by  General  Douglas  with  ten  regiments 
of  foot,  and  five  of  horse  ;  but  Grace,  having  burnt  the  English  portion  of  the  town, 
and  broken  down  the  bridge,  defended  the  Connaught  portion  of  the  town  with 
indomitable  spirit.  When  called  on  to  surrender,  he  fired  a  pistol  over  the  messenger's 
head,  and  declared  :  "  These  are  my  terms  ;  these  only  will  I  give  or  receive ;  and, 
when  my  provisions  are  consumed,  I  will  defend  till  I  eat  my  old  boots."  At  the  end 
■of  a  week,  Douglas  was  obliged  to  draw  oflf,  with  the  loss  of  400  men.  The  town  was 
again  invested  by  De  Ginkell  in  1691.  St.  Ruth  had  meanwhile  obliged  Grace  to 
exchange  three  of  his  veteran  regiments  for  inferior  French  troops ;  nevertheless,  he 
made  a  heroic  defence  under  St.  Ruth,  and  on  the  30th  June,  1691,  after  De  Ginkell's 
passage  of  the  Shannon  and  the  capture  of  the  citadel  on  the  Connaught  side.  Colonel 
Grace's  body  was  found  under  the  rujns. 

At  the  siege  of  Athlone,  Colonel  the  Hon.  Richard  Grace,  here  mentioned,  was 
among  the  killed ;  Colonels  Art  Oge  MacMahon,  and  O'Gara,  among  the  wounded  ; 
and  Brig.-General  Maxwell,  among  the  prisoners.  At  Aughrim,  Colonel  O'Donnellan 
was  wounded  ;  and  among  the  slain  were  O'Kelly  of  Mullaghmore,  Lord  Galway,  and

GRAHAM.  (No.  1.) 

Of  Ireland. 

In  Northern  Notes  and  Queries  (Vol.  I.,  No.  6,  p.  119;  September,  1887. 
Edited  by  the  Rev.  A.  W.  Cornelius  Hallen,  M.A.  ;  and  Published  at 
Edinburgh  by  David  Douglas),  we  read : 

"  It  will  be  seen  that  the  Grahams  at  an  early  date  were  troublesome 

inhabitants  of  the  Borders.     Nothing  is  said*  to  show  whether  they  were 

descended  from  the  Scottish  family  of  the  name,  or  whether — which  seems 

just  as  likely — the  Scottish  house  was  of  Border  origin  ,    .    .   It  is  certain 

that  during  the  sixteenth  century  the  Grahams  were  both  numerous  and 

,  warlike  .  .  .  The  branch  of  the  family  to  which  attention  will,  however, 

j  be  chiefly  drawn  in  these  Notes  is  that  of  Mote.     The  first  Graham  of  Mote 

,  we  have  been  able  to  trace  is  Fergus,  to  whom  a  grant  of  arms  was  made 

in  1583."    Again,  ibid.,  p.  152,  Vol.  L,  No.  7,  we  read  : 

"  We  have  consulted  Mr.  W.  Bruce  Armstrong's  History  of  Liddisdale, 
Mr.  Stoddart's  Scottish  Arms,  10th  Rep.  of  Hist.  MS.  Com.,  and  such 
volumes  of  the  Calendar  of  State  Papers  as  are  likely  to  throw  any  light  on 
the  history  of  the  Grahams  of  Mote.  Nothing  can  be  learned  of  the 
Grahams  of  the  Border  prior  to  1527  ;  Mr.  Stoddart's  conjecture  is  that 
they  came  from  the  Dryfe  in  Dumfriesshire.  In  1528  they  were  amongst 
the  most  troublesome  of  the  Liddisdale  Borderers.  William  Graham  of 
Stuble,  called  'Lang  Willie,'  was  most  probably  from  Arthuret.  (Hist. 
Lid.,  p.  247,  n.)  Stuble  seems-  to  have  been  in  the  Armstrong  country ; 
but  with  most  of  the  Armstrongs  the  Grahams  were  at  constant  strife. 
; Richard  Graham  of  Esk,  eldest  son  of  'Lang  Willie,'  however,  married  an 
Armstrong,  and  was  imprisoned  in  Carlisle  Castle  on  a  charge  of  giving 
information  to  the  family  of  an  attack  on  them  planned  by  Lord  Dacre, 
;  Warden  of  the  West  Marches.  He  succeeded  in  clearing  himself  of  the 
charge,  and  proving  it  against  a  member  of  the  family  of  Storie  of  Netherby 
and  Mote.  On  his  release  from  Carlisle  Castle,  he,  with  Fergus,  his 
brother  next  in  age,  and  five  younger  ones  (all,  however,  then  old  enough 
to  bear  arms),  expelled  the  Stories  from  their  lands,  which  they  shared 
amongst  themselves     .     .     . 

"In  1606  the  descendants  of  Richard  of  Netherby  were  banished  to 
Ireland.  Their  land  was  forfeited,  and  was  sold  in  1 629  to  Richard  Graham, 
second  son  of  Richard  Graham,  of  Plomp,  son  of  Matthew  Graham  of  Spring- 
hill,  beyond  which  it  is  impossible  to  trace  the  present  family  of  Graham 
of  Esk  and  Netherby.  Stoddart  rejects  as  untenable  the  tradition  that 
this  Border  family  was  descended  from  John  Graham  '  of  the  bright  sword,* 
grandson  of  Malise,  Earl  of  Strathearn,  for  it  has  been  clearly  proved  that

be  died  witliout  legitimate  male  issue.*  Returning  to  the  family  of  Mote,' 
Fergus  had  at  least  two  sons :  Roger  or  Richard,  who  went  to  Ireland,  where 
in  1565  he  had  a  grant  of  the  advowson  of  Whitechurch,  co.  Kildare,  which 
was  in  1633  in  the  possession  of  William  Graham,  a  son  of  his  nephew  Sir 
Richard ;  and  Arthur  Graham  of  Mote,  probably  the  other  brother,  who 
had  several  children.  Of  these  Fergus  went  to  Ireland  before  the  general 
break-up  of  the  houses  of  Netherby  and  Mote.  In  1602  he  was  in  receipt 
of  a  yearly  pension  of  £30,  being  described  as  *  an  old  servitor'  of  the  Crown.  , 
His  two  sons,  Richard  and  George,  had  by  this  time  distinguished  them-  ' 
selves  as  valiant  soldiers,  and  the  eldest  had  already  received  knighthood 
(10th  March,  1600),  an  honour  which  was  soon  after  (25th  July,  1603) 
conferred  on  the  younger  brother.  In  1606  {Carew  Papers)  we  find  a  list 
of  Grahams  who  arrived  in  Dublin,  part  of  the  great  body  of  the  clan 
removed  by  James  VI.  to  Ireland  (or  James  I.  of  England),  and  who 
settled  in  various  parts  of  the  country.  A  comparison  of  this  list  with  an 
incomplete  one  of  those  sent  from  Cumberland  given  {Hist.  MS.  Rep.  1885) 
enables  me  to  present  a  tentative  pedigree,  brought  down  to  a.d.  1606),  of 
the  descendants  of  the  two  elder  sons  of  '  Lang  Willie'  Graham  of  Stuble. 
"From  the  History  of  Liddisdale  it  is  evident  that  the  Grahams  of 
Netherby  and  Mote  were  regarded  as  chief  men  in  the  clan,  and  the  removal 
of  all  the  members  of  these  two  houses  in  1606  doubtless  proved  a  most 
effectual  cure  for  the  troubles  that  had  existed.  The  union  of  the  Crowns 
of  England  and  Scotland  had  brought  the  Borders  into  a  closer  grip  of  the 
law  than  they  had  ever  felt.  On  north  and  south  their  neighbours  were 
no  lon^^er  subjects  of  two  kings,  often  at  war  with  each  other,  but  of  one 
who  most  wisely  determined  to  root  out  a  state  of  things  intolerable  in  the 
middle  of  his  kingdom,  however  convenient  it  might  at  times  have  proved 
when  on  the  borders  of  it." 


William  Graham  of  Stuble,  who  was  called  "Lang  Willie,"  came  to 
Netherby  from  Arthuret,  county  Cumberland.  He  married  and  had  eight 
sons  : — 1.  Richard  ;  2.  Fergus,  of  Mote  ;  3.  Thomas  ;  4.  William  ;  5.  John ; 
6.  Hugh  ;  7  and  8 — names  unknown.     These  were  all  of  full  age  in  1528  :

*  Hams:  Walter  Harris,  LL.D.,  one  of  the  most  distinguished  of  Irish  anti- 
quarian writers,  and  the  editor  of  Sir  James  Ware's  works,  was  born  at  Mountmellick 
late  in  the  17th  century.  Although  expelled  from  Trinity  College  in  early  life  for 
participation  in  a  not,  the  degree  of  LL.D.  was  afterwards  conferred  on  him  for  his 
services  to  Irish  historical  research  and  archjeology.  He  mar.  a  great-granddaughter 
of  Sir  James  Ware,  and  thereby  inherited  his  MSS.  ;  and,  possessed  of  competence 
he  devoted  his  life  to  literary  pursuits.  His  principal  works  were  :  History  of  the  Life 
and  lieigjv  of  King  William  HI.  (Dublin  :  1745) ;  Hibernica  :  a  collection  of  eleven 
interesting  and  important  tracts  relating  to  Ireland  (Dublin  :  1749).  The  great  work 
by  which  he  has  earned  the  grateful  remembrance  of  all  the  students  of  Irith  history 
IS  his  translation  and  expansion  of  the  principal  works  of  Sir  James  V/are  published 
in  two  volumes  folio  in  Dublin,  between  1739  and  1746.  "VVare's  Livs  of  the  £-hom 
r^i«n'^?^  ?°B^''^  translation  of  1705  occupies  about  200  pages,  Harris  has  expanded 
to  fabO  ;  the  Antiquities  of  Ireland  he  has  expanded  from  154  to  286  pa'^es  •  and  the 
meagre  notices  of  Irish  Writers,  from  42  to  363  pages.  Of  Ware's  Anna7s  of  Ireland 
he  doubtless  intended  to  make  a  third  volume  (all  the  early  editions  of  Harris's  Ware 
are  noted  on  title  pages  as  three  volumes).  Harris  died  4th  July,  1761  His  Ristoru 
and  Antiguttiesof  the  City  of  Dublin,  which  he  left  in  manuscript,  appeared  in  1766 
Some  of  his  MSS.  are  preserved  in  Armagh  Library,  whilst  the  majority  were  pur'- 
chased  from.his  widow  by  the  Irish  Parliament  for  £500.  They  may  now  be  consulted 
in  the  Library  of  the  Royal  Dub  in  Society.  They  occupy  twenty  volumes  closely 
written,  almost  entirely  in  Harris's  hand— in  themselves  a  monument  of  his  indefati- 
gable industry  and  research.  He  was  a  most  laborious  copyist,  and  much  of  these 
matenalsare  copied  from  printed  books.  Particulars  of  the  contents  of  these  MSS.  will 
be  found  in  Notes  and  querie^  2nd  Series  ;  while  of  his  printed  works  ample  notices 
are  given,  under  the  title  "  Ware,"  by  AlUbone  and  Lowndes.—WEBB

This  family  is  descended  from  Sir  Hugh  Hussey,  who  came  to  Ireland 
temp.  Henry  II. ;  and  settled  in  the  county  Meath. 

In  the  late  Archdeacon  Kowan's  interesting  volume,  entitled  Lake  Lore, 
there  is  an  account  of  Maurice  Hussey,  who  was  M.P.  for  Tralee  in  the 
Parliament  of  James  II.,  as  well  as  Lieutenant-Colonel  of  MacElIigott's 
Kegiment.  He  was  married  to  a  daughter  of  Sir  Edward  Hales,  Bart.,  who 
was  afterwards  raised  to  an  Earldom. 

Lieutenant-Colonel  Maurice  Hussey's  military  career  is  not  recorded 
in  the  Archdeacon's  Memoir  ;  but  he  gives  a  portion  of  his  Will  from  the 
Consistorial  Eegistry  of  the  diocese,  which  shows  that  Hussey  died  in 
1714,  and  directs  that  he  shall  be  buried  in  his  vault  at  Kilugus,  clothed 
in  the  habit  of  St.  Francis,  "  at  night,  if  torches,  lights,  and  lanthornsmay 
be  had." 

The  Archdeacon  adds  that  he  could  never  find  out  to  which  of  the  once 
numerous  branches  of  the  Hussey  family  this  Colonel  belonged ;  and, 
further,  that  he  left  no  direct  representative.

JORDAN  (DE  EXETER),  '''  '''T^'lV''  ] 

Lords  of  AiJileathan,  in  the  Barony  of  Gallen,  and  County  of  Mayo* 

Arms  :  Gu.,  a  lion  rampant  betw.  three  crosses  crosslet  or.  Motto  :  Percussua 

This  Mayo  family  is  descended  from  Jordan  De  Courcy,  who  (see  the  "  De 
Courcy"  genealogy,  ante,)  was  a  younger  brother  of  Sir  John  De  Courcy, 
the  first  Earl  of  Ulster ;  from  him  they  derive  the  sirname  MacJordan,  now 
Jordan.  When,  however,  the  first  of  the  family  came  to  Ireland  with  the 
English  invaders,  a.d.  1168  (or,  according  to  Lodge,  and  De  Burgo,  in 
1169),  they  were  known  by  the  name  De  Exeter,  because  they  came  from 
Exonia  or  Exeter,  ia  England ;  but  when,  to  be  "  as  Irish  as  the  Irish 
themselves,"  the  descendants  of  the  Anglo-Norman  invaders  of  Ireland 
began,  to  assume  Lish  patronymics,  the  De  Exeters  called  themselves 
**  MacJordan,"  after  their  ancestor  Jordan  De  Courcy,  above  mentioned. 

Jordan  De  Courcy  or  Jordan  Teutonicus,  as  he  was  also  called,  was,  in 
1197,  killed  by  an  Irish  retainer;  leaving  m^any  sons,  two  of  whom  were 
slain  while  striving  to  protect  their  uncle,  the  first  Earl  of  Ulster,  from  the 
attacks  of  De  Lacy's  followers  in  the  churchyard  of  Downpatrick,  as  stated 
in  the  *'  De  Courcy"  genealogy. 

In  Yol.  II.,  p.  59,  Sect.  3,  of  The  Antiquities  of  Ireland,  by  Sir  James 
Ware,  revised  by  Walter  Harris,  we  find  that : 

"  The  De  Exonias  or  De  Exeters  submitted  to  be  called  MacJordans,  from  one 
Jordan  De  Exonia,  who  was  the  first  founder  of  the  family." 

The  "Jordan"  portion  of  the  family  name  originated,  it  is  said,  in  the 
fact  that  Jordan  De  Courcy  went  as  standard-bearer  with  the  English 
Crusaders  to  the  Holy  Land,  and,  in  a  great  battle  which  took  place 
between  the  Christians  and  the  Saracens  on  the  banks  of  the  river  Jordan, 
was  so  vigorously  attacked  by  the  Saracen  host,  that  on  three  or  four 
occasions  his  standard,  which  was  the  Banner  of  the  Cross,  almost 
disappeared  from  the  view  of  the  Christians,  who,  therefore,  greatly  feared 
for  his  safety ;  but,  from  his  extraordinary  strength,  and  the  help  ho 
received  from  his  followers,  De  Courcy  re-appeared  with  'his  standard,  as 
if  miraculously,  and  on  each  occasion  dealt  destruction  to  the  enemy. 
Hence  the  adoption  by  his  descendants,  the  De  Exeters,  of  the  name 
Jordan,  in  memory  of  their  ancestor's  remarkable  prowess  on  that  occasion ; 
and  the  addition  of  the  Cross,  Crosslet,  and  Lion  to  their  Arms,  with  the 
Motto,  Percussiis  resurgo.  According  to  Mill's  History  of  the  Crusades, 
Vol.  L,  Third  Edition  (1822),  two  brothers,  William  and  Alberic  De 
Grantmesnil,  who  were  closely  connected  by  marriage  with  the  De  Courcy 
family  in  England,  went  to  the  Holy  Land,*  and  greatly,  distinguished 

*  Holy  Zand  :  From  the  many  piou3  associations  connected  with  Palestine, 
exclusive  of  the  Crusades,  Christians  from  other  nations  went  there  in  the  middle  ages 
to  perform  Pilgrimao;e3.  Members  of  some  of  the  ancient  Irish  families  weut  there 
for  that  purpose.     Under  a.d.  1224,  the  Four  Masters  say  : 

"  Hugh  O'Connor,  of  Maonmoy,  died  on  his  journey  home  from  Jeraaalem,  oa  the 
JEliver"  (Jordan). 

And,  under  a.d.  1231,  they  also  say  : 

"Ualgarg  O'Rourke,  lord  of  Brefney,  died  on  hia  Pilgrimage  to.  the  River"

themselves  during  the  Crusades.  It  is  believed  that  Jordan  De  Courcy 
I  accompanied  those  two  brothers,  as  a  Crusader;  and,  on  his  return  to 

England,  remained  some  time  in  Germany:  and  that  hence  the  adfix 
1  Teutonims  to  his  name,  as  in  the  case  of  Balderic,  one  of  his  ancestors, 
I  mentioned  in  the  "  De  Courcy"  genealogy.      It  is  here  worthy  of  remark 

that  "  Jordan  Teutonicus"  was  also  the  name  of  the  Dominican  Monk  who 

succeeded  St.  Dominic,  as  General  or  Provincial  of  that  Order.     De  Burgo 

states  in  cap.  3  of  his  Hihernia  Dominicana  : 

"Anno  Domini  1220  sint  oelebratum  Bononia  primum  Capitulum  Generale  a  B. 
Dominico,  efc  Anno  sequent!  scilicet  1221  B.  Dominicus  secundum  Capitulum  Generale 
celebravit  Eononia  ...  in  quo  capitulo  Frater  Jordanus  Teutonicus  qui  nondum 
in  ordine  annum  compliverat  factua  est  provincialis  Lombardise." 

And  again : 

"  Frater  Jordanus  Teutonicus  qui  nondum  in  ordine  annum  compliverat  factus  est 
Provincialis  Lombardiam  fundatis  jam  per  ordinem  circiter  sexaquinta  conventibus 
qui  in  octo  provinciam  erat  distincti :  scilicet  Hispaniam,  Provinciam  Prpvincise, 
Franciam,  Lombardiam  Romanam,  Teutoniam,  Hungariam,  et  Angliam." 

In  the  Hihernia  Dominicana*  De  Bargo  says  that  the  family  came  to 
Ireland  in  1169  ("  Henrico  II.  Rege"),  from  Exonia,  in  England,  and  was 
therefore  called  I)e  Exonia^  or  De  Exeter : 

"  Laudatum  stirpem  apud  Anglos  domicilium  fixisse  Exonise,  Agri  Dwoniensis 
(vulgo  Devonshire)  Civitatis  Capitalis,  a  quo  suum  desumpsit  cognomen  ;" 

and  that  the  name  was  afterwards  changed  to  Dexter,   Dexetra,    and 
MacJordan  ;  the  same  as  DeArcie  has  become  Darcy  and  Devereux  : 

"  De  Exonia,  fere  De  Exeter,  anglice  per  syncopen  Dexter,  hibemicd  MacJordan  r 
sicut  cognomina  quae  olim  De  Arcie  seu  Arcy  ac  De  Eureux  postea  D'Arcy  ac 
D'Eureux,  tandemque  Darcy  ac  Devereux  passim  scribuntur." 

And  De  Burgo  says  that,  in  1269,  Eichard  De  Exonia  was  Viceroy 
(Pro-regem)  or  Lord  Deputy  of  Ireland  : 

**    .    ,     ,    Eichardum  de  Exonia,  Pro-regem  fuLsse  Hibemise,  Auiio  1269." 

To  that  fact,  Ware,  Harris,  and  O'Heyne  also  bear  testimony. 

The  De  Exeters  made  settlements  in  ancient  Meath,  where  (see  ivfra) 
they  built  the  Castle  of  Castlejordan ;  in  the  territory  of  Galenga,!  which 

*  Ilibernia  Dominicana  :  In  that  great  work  we  tind  many  references  to  the 
* '  MacJordan"  family,  from  which  we  extract  the  following  :  "  Jordanus  Teutonicus," 
"  Jordanus  De  Exonia  Athlethanse  (anglic^  Athleathan)  Dominicus,"  "Ex  Anglica 
hac  familia  de  Exonia,  quse  magni  olim  fuit  nominis  in  hoc  tractu  multi,  nunc 
Hibernico  mor^  MacJordan,  id  est  Jordan  Filii  appeUantur." 

i  Exonia  :  The  name  De  Exonia  is  sometimes  met  as  De  Exon.  The  latter  name 
would  indicate  that  it  derived  from  Exon,  the  name  given  to  the  Commander  of  the 
Body-guard  of  the  Royal  Household.  In  Lodge  we  find  that  Robert,  Lord  of  Courcy 
in  Normandy,  and  an  ancestor  of  this  family,  was  (see  the  "  De  Courcy"  genealogy, 
ante).  Sewer  or  Steward  of  the  household  of  King  Henry  I.  of  England,  and  of  thf 
household  of  his  daughter  the  Empress  Maude. 

t  Galenga  :  The  Galenga  territory  here  mentioned  comprised  the  entire  of  the 
present  Diocese  of  Ardagh  ;  and  included  the  patrimonies  of  the  families  of  O'Har* 
and  O'Gara,  whose  tribe  name  was  Galknga.    That  name,  or  its  anglicised  foria

gave  its  name  to  the  present  barony  of  "Gallon,"  in  the  county  of  Mayo  ; 
and  in  the  north  of  Tirawley  (now  the  barony  of  Tyrawley),  in  the  said 
county,  where,  about  five  miles  north  of  Killala,  they  founded  in  1274  the 
Abbey  of  Eathbran,  or,  as  it  is  now  spelled,  "  Rafran."* 

Under  A.D.  1247,  in  the  Annals  of  the  Four  Masters,  we  find  the  De 
Exeter  family  name  there  first  mentioned  as  '' Siurtan  Dexetra:"  the 
word  "Siurtan"  being  Irish  for  Jordan  ;  and  under  A.D.  1249,  the  name 
"Jordan."t  In  1355,  Stephen  De  Exeter  fought  for  the  O'Maddens 
against  the  Bourkes ;  in  1394,  "John,  son  of  Meyler,  was  slain  by  the  sons 
of  John  De  Exeter;"  in  1416,  MacJordan  De  Exeter  attacked  O'Hara's 
sons  and  plundered  the  country,  the  people  of  the  territory  assembled 
against  him,  and  he  was  defeated  and  slain  ;  in  1426,  Kichard  MacJordan, 
of  the  "  Wood,"  was  taken  prisoner  by  Owen,  son  of  O'Flaherty,  and  was 
given  up  to  MacJordan  Dubh,  by  whom  he  was  slain.  In  1428  an  incursion 
was  made  by  MacJordan  De  Exeter  into  Tyrawley  against  Thomas  Barrett 
and  his  sons;  in  1472,  the  sons  of  MacJordan  deserted  (or  strayed)  from 
the  array  of  Mac  William  Bourke,  and  all  were  slain  except  MacJordan ; 
in  1486,  O'Donnell,  of  Tirconnell,  mustered  an  army,  entered  Tyrawley, 
and  took  John  MacJordan  and  others,  prisoners,  etc. 

Under  A.D,  1253,  the  Four  Masters  say  : 

"  A  MonasteryJ  was  founded  for  the  Dominicans  at  Athleathan,  in  Lieney,  by 
the  De  Exeters,  Lords  of  Athleathan,  barony  of  Gallen,  and  county  of  Mayo." 

*'Gallen''  (which  was  so  late  as  1537,  called  "MacJordan's  Country"),  derived  its 
appellation  from  Cormac  Gaileang,  to  whom  the  Irish  Monarch  Cormac  MacArt,  la 
the  third  century,  granted  that  territory.  Cormac  Gaileang,  who  was  son  of  Teige, 
sou  of  Cian,  son  of  Olioll  Glum,  was  a  relative  of  King  Cormac  MacArt  ;  and  was  the 
ancestor  of  the  "  O'Hara"  and  "O'Gara"  families. — See  the"0'Hara"  genealogy  ia 
Vol.  I.  of  this  Edition. 

*  JRafran  :  Of  that  Abbey,  De  Burgo,  in  his  Sii.  Dom.,  says : 

"  The  family  of  Dexter,  who  afterwards  took  the  name  of  MacJordan,  founded  a 
Monastery  here  for  Dominican  Friars,  in  1274 ;"  while  in  pp.  279-2S0  of  that  work,  he 
also  says  : 

"De  fundatore  autem  valde  anceps  Waraeus  ibidem  aiens ;  sunt  qui  caenobium 
canditum  aflferunt  a  familia  de  Exonia  qui  postmodum  MacJordans  ut  Bibernise  morem 
gererent  se  cognomiilafunt  prout  baud  ita  pridem  exponibam." 

t  Jordan  :  The  several  changes  in  this  family  name  has  rendered  it  difficult  to 
an-ange  the  history  of  the  family  :  la  1273,  we  tind  the  name  "Jordan  Dexetra  ;"  in 
1289,  "  De  Exeters  ;"  in  1294,  "  De  Exeters  ;"  in  1316,  "Dexeter  ;"  in  1317,  "  Myler

MacCostello  ;"  in  1355,  "  Stephen  MacJordan  ;"  in  1380,  "MacJordan  Dexeter,"  and. 
"  John  Dexeter;"  in  1381,  the  "  Castle  of  Athleathan  ;"  in  1394,  "  John  MacJordan" 
and  "  John  Dexeter ;"  in  1395,  "MacJordan  Dexeter"  and  "MacJordan;"  in  1416, 
"MacJordan  Dexeter;"  in  1426,  "Eichard  MacJordan;"  in  1428,  "MacJordan 
Dexeter  ;"  in  1438,  "  Jordan  ;"  in  1472,  "  MacJordan  ;"  in  1485,  "  Celia,  daughter  of 
MacJordan,  the  most  exalted  woman  in  Connaught,  died  ;"  in  1486,  "  MacJordan  ;" 
&c.  For  information  respecting  the  Jordan  family  in  England  the  reader  is  referred 
to  Hume's  and  Smollett's  History/  of  England. 

Jourdan,  one  of  Napoleon  the  First's  distinguished  generals,  is  supposed  to  have 
been  descended  from  the  De  Exeter  Jordan  family,  of  the  barony  of  Gallen,  and  county 
of_Mayo.  In  the  Illustrations  Historical,  by  Dalton,  we  find  in  Butler's  regiment  ia 
King  James  the  Second's  Army  List,  the  name  Jordan  mentioned  amongst  the  ensigns 
in  that  regiment.  That  officer  emigrated  to  France  with  other  Irish  soldiers  after  the 
violation  of  the  Treaty  of  Limerick  (in  1691),  and  from  him  posaibly  descended  the 
famous  General  Jourdan,  above  mentioned.

248     JOB.  lEISH  PEDIGREES.  JOE.      [PART  V.' 

Ware,*  Vol.  I.,  p.  407,  says  that  Michael  of  JExeter,  a  member  of  this 
family,  succeeded  as  bishop  in  1289,  and  died  in  1302.  In  p.  609  of  same'' 
volume,  Ware  adds  that  the  De  Exeters  or  De  Exonias  assumed  the  name' 
"  MacJordan ;"  and  in  p.  562,  same  volume,  we  find  an  ecclesiastic  named 
"Jordan"  (who  died  in  1434)  mentioned  as  succeeding  in  1431  as  Bishop 
of  Cork  and  Cloyne,  then  canonically  united. 

In  De  Burgo's  time  the  MacJordan  family  had  reached  the  thirteenth 
generation  (seculo  xiii.)  in  Ireland  ;  he  says  : 

*'F.  Stephanusde  Exonia,  Hiberrius,  ex  illustri  hujus  nominis  Familia  Anglica, 
sed  qua  in  Hiberniam  seculo  xiii.,  jam  commigrarat  et  apud  Athleathan  sedem  fixerat 
cujus,  et  Domiaum  compararat  originem  ducens,  natus  anno  1246,  et  25  Martii  1263

MSS.  Anglia  et  Hibernia  ubi  sic  legitur.     Tom.  II.,  Pag.  11,  Num.  42." 

And  again,  writing  of  the  same  Friar  Stephen  de  Exonia,  De  Burgo  says  : 

"  F.  Stephanus  de  Exonia,  anglic^  per  Syncopen  Dexter,  hibemic^  MacJordan, 
Csenobii  Stradensi,  a  gente  sua  fundati  Alumnus  floruit  Anno  1274."  .  .  .  "  Auctor 
Annalium  illorum  quos  vulcro  Annales  Montis  Fernandi  sive  Minoritarum  Multifarnse 
vocamus,  incipit  ab  Anno  Domini  1245  et  definit  Anno  1274,  quo  tempore  ille  vixit, 
ut  ex  antiquitate  characteris  liquet  non  possum  non  suspicari  auctorem  f  uisse  Fratrem 
Stephanum  de  Exonia,  quem  natum  perhibent  Anualis  illi  Anno  1246,  et  habitu 
ordinis  sui  indutum  in  Die  Aiinunciationis  B,  Mariae  Anno  1262." 

The  Friar  Stephen  De  Exonia,  here  mentioned  by  De  Burgo,  as  the 
writer  of  the  Annals  of  Multifernan  (commonly  known  as  "Anonymous 
Annals"),  was  one  of  the  Dominican  Monks  of  the  Abbey  of  Strade ;  and 
a  son  of  De  Exeter,  lord  of  Athleathan.     Of  that  Friar,  Ware  says  :f 

"The  Annala  of  the  Dominicans  were  brought  down  by  an  Anonymous  Friar  of 
that  Order,  to  the  year  1274,  in  which  the  author  flourished." 

This  extract  was  copied  from  the  Annals  De  Monte  Fernandi,X  a  copy 

another  site.  The  ruins  of  both.  Abbeys  are  still  to  be  seen  at  Athleathan  (now  called 
Strade),  in  the  parish  of  Templemore,  and  said  barony  of  Gallen,  but  in  the  ancient 
territory  of  Lieney.  In  Archdall's  Monasticon  Hibernicum,  the  building  and  endowment 
of  the  Abbey  of  Athleathan  is  mentioned.  Some  authorities  say  it  was  founded  by 
O'Heyne  |  but  Ware  says  that  it  was  at  the  solicitation  of  the  wife  of  De  Exeter,  Lord 
of  Athleathan,  viz.,  Penelope  O'Connor,  that  the  Abbey  was  founded  and  endowed  by 
her  husband ;  while  De  Burgo  says  that  it  was  at  the  solicitation  of  Basilia  De 
Bermingham,  sister  of  the  Baron  of  Athenry,  that  her  husband  De  Exeter  built  and 
endowed  the  Monastery.  Evidently  Ware  and  De  Burgo  aUude — the  former  to  the

lof  the  De  Exeter  who  founded  the  first  Abbey  at  Athleathan,  and  Penelope  O'Connor 
his  second  wife ;  or,  the  two  Abbeys  -were  founded  by  different  members  of  the  Da 
Exeter  family,  and  their  respective  wives  were  the  ladies  above  mentioued.  To  tlji;j 
day  the  Monastery  of  Athleathan  possesses  some  of  the  most  perfect  and  beautiful 
specimens  of  ancient  work  on  stone.

Note,  page  24,  Annals  of  Multifernan,  Hanmer  says  :  A.D.  1269,  "  Richard  De 
Exonia  or  De  Exeter  was  made  Lord  Justice,  and  died  same  year  with  Jiis  wife  Margery 
De  Say.  Sir  James  Ware  repeats  Hanmer's  statement."  The  Annals  of  Multifernan 
state  that  Richard  of  Exeter  married  Yesimain,  the  daughter  of  Lord  David  De 
Prendergast,  then  Baron  of  Clanmorris.  The  names  Eva,,  Yesmain,  and  Margery  are 
to  this  day  common  "family  names  in  the  De  Exeter  family. 

In  Grace's  Annals  the  following  entries  of  this  family  are  to  he  found : 

A.D.  1312  :  "  Milo  De  Verdon  married  the  daughter  of  Richard  De  Exonia,  Dexter, 
or  De  Exeter.  This  great  Connaught  family  of  De  Exeter  assumed  at  this  time  the 
name  of  Jordan  or  MacJordan,  and  Richard  De  Exonia  was  Chief  Justice  in  Banco." 
(State  Papers,  Edward  II.,  page  117.) 

Edward  I.invaded  Scotland,  and  his  Justiciary,  JohnDarcy,  summoned  the  Anglo- 
Irish  Barons  and  a  number  of  the  Irish  Princes  to  attend  the  expedition  to  Scotland 
with  men,  arms,  horses,  etc. — Rhymer,  Vol.  II.,  page  906;  and,  according  to  Grace's 
Annals,  a  large  number  of  the  Anglo-Norman  Irish  nobility  attended  King  Edward  in 
his  expeditions  to  Scotland,  among  whom  two  of  the  De  Exeter  Lords  were  present, 
and  were  amongst  the  nobles  entertained  by  the  king  at  Roxburgh  Castle.  The  De 
Exeters  also  fought  in  Gascoigne  during  the  king's  wars  ;  and  members  of  that  family 
were  present  at  the  victories  during  subsequent  reigns  in  France. 

In  Grace'-s  Annals,  page  170,  and  page  170  in  the  Appendix  to  those  Annals,  three 
members  of  the  De  Exeter  family  are  named  amongst  the  list  of  the  Peers  summoned 
to  attend  the  Parliament  at  Kilkenny  held  in  the  year  A.D.  1309. — See  also  Lynch 's 
and  Betham's  Feudal  Dignities. 

The  right,  according  to  the  Constitutional  law  of  the  country,  still  exists  that,  as 
the  De  Exeter  Jordans  have  been  Peers  in  Parliament,  and  have  received  Writs  of  sum- 
mons to  attend  as  such  from  time  immemorial,  and  before  Kings  and  Queens  arro- 
gated to  themselves  the  power  of  granting  titles  ;  they  can  claim  their  ancient  titles 
if  they  choose  when  they  prove  their  direct  descent,  .".iid  that  no  bills  of  attainder  haa 
been  passed  against  the  members  of  the  family.  This  Constitutional  law  is  distinctly 
laid  down  in  Hume  and  SmoUet's  History  of  Ilngland,  in  Archdall's  edition  of  Lodge's 


Monte  Fernandi  (known  as  the  Annals  of  Multifernan),  in  the  first  sentence  in  the 
Introduction  :  "The  following  Annals  commence  ad.  45,  and  terminate  with  the  year 
1274  ;  and  .  .  .  they  claim  attention  from  their  antiquity,  and  are,  perhaps,  the 
most  ancient  annals  of  this  country  written  exclusively  in  the  Latm  language."

A.D.  1571.  Edmoud  Campion,  in  his  History  of  Ireland,  gives  the  names  of  thft 
temporal  nobility  then  in  Ireland,  among  whom  he  places  "Lord  Deseret,"  whom  Sir 
Henry  Sidney  called  "Jordan  De  P]xeter  ;"  and  of  whom  he  further  states  that  this 
family  were  Lords  in  the  time  of  the  Duke  of  Clarence's  Lord  Lieutenancy,  ia  1361.. 
— See  Hogan's  Description  of  Ireland,  in  1592,  p.  232. 

The  Annals  of  the  Four  Masters  relate  the  various  attacks  on  the 
Castle  of  Athleathan  ;  but  it  still  remained  in  the  possession  of  the 
family  until  Cromwell  confiscated  their  large  possessions,  and  removed 
them  to  their  present  family  seat  Bathslevin  (modernized  "  Kosslevin") 
Castle,  situate  in  the  said  barony  of  Gallen  and  county  of  Mayo,  and 
about  five  or  six  miles  south-east  of  Ballylahan. 

The  MacJordans  held  high  and  distinguished  positions  among  the 
invaders,  and  intermarried  with  the  families  of  De  Say,  Prendergast,  and 
Costello ;  and  with  some  other  of  the  noblest  families  in  Connaught,  viz. : 
A  De  Exeter  MacJordan  m.  Penelope  O'Connor,  daughter  of  the  King  of 
Ireland;  another  m.  Easilia  De  Bermingham,  daughter  of  the  lord  baron 
of  Athenry  (both  of  whom  are  above-mentioned);  a  daughter  of  Walter 
Jordan  De  Exeter,  of  the  Island  near  Ballyhaunis,  county  of  Mayo,  m.  ia 
1692  (according  to  the  "Dillon"  pedigree,  by  Lodge),  one  of  Lord  Clon- 
brock's  ancestors  ;  etc.  And  Celia  MacJordan  married  Eickard  Bourke, 
from  both  of  whom  are  descended  the  present  marquis  of  Clanricarde,  and 
the  earl  of  Mayo.  Of  this  lady,  as  already  stated,  the  Four  Masters,  under 
A.D.  1485,  say  : 

"Celia,  daughter  of  MacJordan,  the  wife  of  Rickard  Bourke,  the  most  exalted, 
woman  in  Connaught,  died," 

The  principal  residence  of  the  MacJordan  family  was,  as  'already 
mentioned,  at  Athleathan,  where,  in  1169  or  1170,  they  built  their  most 
important  Castle  in  Ireland,  which  was  called  Athleathan  Castle.  It  was 
afterwards  called  BaUeatha-leathan  (meaning  the  "Town  of  the  Broad 
Ford''),  and  at  present  Ballylahan.  That  ancient  Castle  is  now  in  a  state 
of  ruin ;  but,  judging  by  the  extensive  area  covered  by  its  remains,  the 
Castle  must  have  been  a  very  large  building. 

Hardiman,  in  his  description  of  Sir  Wifliam  Petty's  Survey  of  Ii-eland, 
gives  a  verbatim  copy  of  Petty's  report  to  his  Government.  In  that 
report  Petty,  speaking  of  the  then  De  Exeter  Jordan,  states  that  he  and. 
others  showed  him  matters  of  record  and  credit  that  they  were  barons  by 
tenure  of  lands,  and  were  summoned  as  such  to  Parliament.  Petty  also 
states  that  they  had  lands  sufficient  for  such  dignity,  &c.  The  Cromwellian 
and  Williamite  Confiscations,  however,  deprived  the  MacJordans  of  much 
of  their  ancient  territory.  Yet,  but  few  families  still  hold,  as  do  the 
MacJordans,  large  tracts  of  the  same  lands  which  they  possessed  more 
than  700  years  ago ;  and  are  able  to  trace  as  they  can  a  direct  and 
unbroken  descent  from  the  founder  of  their  family  in  Ireland.  It  is  a 
strange  fact  that,  notwithstanding  the  Confiscations  and  Penal  Laws  in 
Ireland,  the  MacJordans  have  remained  unchanged  in  Faith  ;  and  that 
although  at  one  time  to  all  appearance  stricken  down  by  tyranny  and. 
persecution,  the  family  still  maintains  a  most  respectable  position  in 
society ;  as  it  were  verifying  their  ancient  Motto — Fercussus  Eesurgo.

In  the  Topographia  Eibernica'^  we  read  that  Strade  or  Straid  is  a  fair

by  the  river  Moy.f  The  Sept  MacJordan  founded  a  House  here  under 
the  Invocation  of  the  Holy  Cross  for  Friars  of  the  Order  of  St.  Francis ; 
but  in  1252  it  was  given  to  the  Dominicans.  A  small  part  of  this  Friary 
still  remains,  but  the  walls  of  the  church,  which  was  singularly  beautiful, 
are  still  entire ;  the  high  altarj  is  adorned  with  Gothic  ornaments.  In 
the  centre  of  the  altar  is  an  image  of  our  Saviour  when  an  infant  in  the 
Virgin's  lap,  and  a  person  in  relievo  within  a  compartment  of  each  side. 
Here  is  also  a  tomb  adorned  with  curious  relievos  of  four  kings  in  different 
compartments,  one  of  whom  is  kneeling  before  a  mitred  person ;  near  to 
it  is  another  relievo  of  Saints  Peter  and  Paul. 

On  the  15th  July,  1585,  and  the  27th  of  Elizabeth,  a  Commission  was 
issued  by  Her  Majesty  Queen  Elizabeth  :

Ballylahan  alias  Gallen  was  one.  In  Mayo  -they  found  that  there  were 
1,548  quarters  of  land,  each  quarter  containing  120  Irish  acres;  and, 
after  detailing  several  baronies^  it  is  found  that  in  the  barony  of  Gallen 
there  is  a  quantity  of  land  called  Clan  Stephen.^

Bourke,  Rickard  Barrett,  Walter  Kittagh  Bourke,  Edmond  Barrett,  and 
Richard  MacGibbon. 

The  Irish  Chiefs  and  Owners  of  the  country,  except  those  in  the 
interest  of  the  English  in  Ireland,  kept  aloof,  and  neither  attended  the 
Commission,  nor  added  their  signatures  to  the  Indenture ;  for,  feeling 
that  the  settlement  made  in  that  Indenture  was  only  a  pretext  to 
ascertain  the  extent  and  value  of  the  inheritance  possessed  by  the  native 
Irish  Chiefs  (and  which  was  soon  after  turned  to  sad  account  against 
them),  they  did  not  sign  the  Indenture :  they  preferred  to  absent  them- 
selves, so  as  not  to  be  identified  with  such  unjust  interference  with  their 
rights;  but,  from  compulsion,  they  had  afterwards  to  gladly  submit. 
The  Galway  Grand  Jury,t  who  refused  to  find  that  the  Crown  of  England 
had  paramount  rights  in  the  Irish  soil  were  committed  to  prison,  and 
released  only  on  payment  of  heavy  penalties.  If  we  trace  those  Com- 
missioners we  shall  find  them  in  possession  of  the  Estates,  of  which  they 
held  inquiry ;  for  instance :   Thomas  Dillon§   got  the  greater   part   of

"  Mac  Jordan's  Country,"  and  other  lands  in  Mayo,  besides  large  pai'cels 
of  MacDermott's  territory  in  Moylurg ;  and  of  O'Kelly's,  in  Hy-Maine. 

Commencing  with  Jordan  de  Courcy,  who,  as  above  shown,  was 
brother  of  Sir  John  De  Courcy,  the  first  Earl  of  Ulster,  the  following  is 
the  genealogy  of  the  De  Exeter  Jordan  family : 

1.  Jordan  De  Courcy,  who  in 
1197  was  killed  by  an  Irish  retainer 
in  Ulster,  leaving  three  sons,  two 
of  whom  were  slain  in  Downpatrick 
churchyard,  in  1203,  while  defend- 
ing their  uncle,  Sir  John  De  Courcy. 
against  the  attack  of  De  Lacy's 
followers  (as  mentioned,  ante,  in 
the  "De  Courcy"  genealogy);  the 
third  son  being  a  mere  boy  at  the 

2.  Jordan  De  Courcy*  or  Jordan 
De  Exeter :  third  son  of  Jordan. 
This  boy  was  removed  by  his 
friends  to  Exeter  in  England,  to 
escape  for  the  time  in  Ireland  the 
persecutionf  of  the  De  Courcy 
family  by  their  great  rivals  the 
De  Lacys,  instigated  by  King 
John.     When  that  persecution  had 

ceased  with  the  death  of  that 
arbitrary  Monarch,  Jordan  De 
Exeter  returned  to  Ireland  and 
made  a  settlement  in  ancient 
Heath ;  where  he  built  the  fortress 
called  Jordan's  Castle,  and  yet 
known  as  Castlejordan  ;\  but,  to 
assert  his  uncle's  title  to  the  lord- 
ship of  Connaught  which  with  the 
earldom  o?  Ulster  was  in  1181 
granted  by  King  Henry  II.  to  him 
and  his  heirs  male,  besides  any 
other  land  in  Ireland  he  (Sir  John 
De  Courcy)  could  gain  by  the  sword, 
this  Jordan  De  Exeter  invaded 
that  Province  with  a  powerful 
following  of  friends  and  retainers ; 
made  a  settlement  in  ancient 
Galenga  and  in  Tyrawley,  as  above 
mentioned  ;  and  built  his  principal 

of  the  MacJordans,  ia  the  barony  of  Gallen  ;  with  other  grants  of  similar  confisca- 
tions at  the  time  in  the  barony  of  Costello,  and  co.  of  Mayo.  Those  grants  included 
the  town  and  Castle  of  Ballylahan,  the  Castle  and  town  of  Rathslevin,  and  divers 
other  lands,  rents,  and  hereditaments  in  the  county  of  Mayo,  of  which  the  De  Exeter 
Jordan  family  were  deprived.  In  those  days  religious  persecutions  were  for  the 
most  part  the  means,  or  ostensibly  the  cause,  by  which  new  families  in  Ireland  were 
aggrandised,  at  the  expense  of  the  descendants  of  the  ancient  Irish  Proprietors  ;  and 
of  the  Anglo-Norman  invaders  of  Ireland,  who  endeavoured  to  conciliate  the  native 
Irish,  by  adopting  their  manners,  laws,  and  customs.  Almost  all  those  new  families 
are  now,  we  are  sorry  to  say,  as  alien  ia  race,  ideas,  and  feelings,  as  when  their 
ancestors  first  became  the  possessors  of  confiscated  lands  in  Ireland  !  While  Lord 
Strafford,  as  lord  lieutenant,  acted  in  the  most  tyrannical  manner  in  confiscating  the 
Estates  of  the  Irish,  but  particularly  the  Catholic  Irish  Chiefs;  yet,  for  that  very 
reason,  some  historians  appear  to  lament  his  execution  !  Strafford's  unhappy  death, 
however,  did  not  restore  their  Estates  to  the  Irish  proprietors,  whom  he  had  so  cruelly 
wronged.  ^ 

*  Jordan  De  Courcy  :  This  boy's  mother  was  one  of  the  descendants  of  Hugh  De 
Brionis,  Sheriff  of  Devonshire,  whom  William  the  Conqueror  endowed  with  one 
hundred  and  fifty-nine  lordships  in  that  shire  ;  and  who,  when  appointed  by  the  Con- 
queror as  Governor  of  the  Castle  of  Exeter,  was  commonly  named  De  Exeter.  Hence, 
young  Jordan  De  Courcy,  on  his  return  to  Ireland,  a.ssumed  a  portion  of  his  mother's  j 
name,  and  was  known  as  Siurthan  De  Exeter,  which  means  "  Jordan  De  Exeter." — See

Castle  at  Athleathan,  ia  tho  barony 
of  Gallen,  and  co.  of  Mayo. 

Under  a.d,  1247,  this  Jordan 
De  Exeter  is  mentioned  by  the 
Four  Masters  as  "Siurtan  De 
Exeter,"  who  was  then  in  command 
of  the  English  forces  in  Connauoht, 
and  who  caused  the  Irish  King 
Torlogh  O'Connor  to  retreat  from 
Carra  in  that  year  "  as  he  had  not 
equal  forces  to  meet  themi"  In 
1249,  this  Jordan  (or  Siurtan)  De 
Exeter,  lord  of  Athleathan,  was 
sherifff  of  Connaught:  and  com- 
manded the  Anglo-Norman  forces 
at  Athenry,  when,  say  the  Four 
Masters,  *'  he  gained  a  great  victory 
over  the  Irish,  by  the  miraculous 
interposition  of  the  Blessed  Virgin 

3.  Myler  De  Exeter  Jordan,  lord 
of  Athleathan :  son  of  Jordan  De 
Exeter :  m.  Basilia,  daughter  of  De 
Bermingham,  lord  of  Athenry. 
This  lady,  according  to  De  Burgo, 
induced  her  husband  to  build  and 
endow  the  abbey  of  Straid,  near 
the  family  residence  of  Athleathan 

4.  Stephen,  lord  of  Athleathan  : 
son  of  Myler ;  was  also  Sheriff  of 
Connaught,  and  with  one  of  his 
knights  named  Pierce  Agabard  was 
killed  in  a  sea-fight  against  Mac- 
Sorley  (MacDonnell)  off  th«  coast 
of  Connemara. 

5.  Richard  (called  by  some  "  De 
Exonia") :    son  of  Stephen ;    was, 

according  to  Ware,  De  "Burgo, 
Karris,  and  O'Heyne,  Viceroy  or 
Lord  Deputy  of  Ireland,  in  1269. 
He  m.  in  1260  Eva  (d.  in  1262),  dau. 
of  O'Connor,  King  of  Connaught. 
As  the  first  Abbey  of  Straid  had 
been  burned  down,  this  Richard  De 
Exonia,  at  the  solicitation  of  his 
wife,  built  and  endowed  another 
Abbey  there,  for  the  Dominicans. 
Having  large  possessions  in  Ty- 
rawley  (his  lands  there  having 
been  increased  by  his  marriage 
with  the  King's  daughter),  he  also 
built  and  endowed  the  Abbey  of 
Rathbran  or  Rafran,  near  Killala, 
also  for  the  Dominicans.  Richard 
had  a  brother  Simon  De  Exeter, 
who  in  1284  was  killed  in  a  battle 
between  his  forces  and  those  of 
the  O'Flynns,  MacDermotts,  and 

6.  Myler :  son  of  Richard  ;  was 
killed  in  a  battle  fought  between 
the  English  in  Connaught  and  Kin" 
Calvagh  O'Connor,  in  1289. 

7.  Slemme  De  Exeter,  lord  of 
Athleathan :  son  of  Myler ;  was 
in  1316,  while  in  command  of  the 
English  forces,  killed  in  the  battle 
of  Athleathan,  in  which  Mjles  De 
Cogan,  "  the  noblest  baron  in  Ire- 
laud,"  in  his  time,  was  with  other 
Anglo-Normans  also  slain.  This 
Slemme  was  succeeded  by  his 
brother  Myler,  who,  in  a  fight  that 
in  1317  took  place  on  the  banks  of 
the  river  Methanagh  in  Drumcliff, 

*  Sherif:  This  term  is  of  English  origin  in  Ireland.  The  Sheriff  in  ancient  times 
•was  entrusted  with  Doth  the  adniinistratiori  of  justice  and  the  management  of  the 
King's  revenue. 

t  Virgin  Mary:  According  to  Hardiman'a  West  Connaught,  p.  265,  under  ad, 
1249,  "  The  Irish  nobility  of  Connaught  went  to  Athenrie,  to  prey  and  spoile  that 
towne  on  the  day  of  our  Lady  the  Blessed  Virgin  Mary,  in  the  middest  of  harvest  .  . 
The  Sheriff  of  Connaught  with  many  Englishmen  were  in  the  said  towne  before  them. 
There  was  a  great  army  with  Terlagh  MacHugh  (O'Connor).  The  Sheriff  and  English- 
men desired  them  in  honour  of  the  Blessed  Virgin  Mary,  whose  day  then  was,  to 
forbear  with  them  that  day,  which  the  Irish  nobility  refused  .  .  They  assaulted 
the  towne  against  the  will  of  the  said  Terlagb,  which  Jordan  De  Exeter  the  Sheriffe 
and  Englishmen  seeing,  they  rushed  forthe  to  meet  the  said  Irishmen,  when  the  Virgia 
Wary  wrought  miraculously  against  the  said  nobility."

commanded  by  Donal  O'Connor. 
Myler  was  succeeded  by  his  son : 

8.  Myler,  as  lord  of  Athleathan, 
who  died  1336.  (Under  A.D.  1340, 
the  Four  Masters  relate  that  Jordan 
IMacCostello  was  slain  by  Cathal 
MacDermott  Grail.) 

9.  Slevin  :*  son  of  Myler ;  suc- 
ceeded his  father  as  lord  of 
Athleathan ;  and  built  some  of  the 
Castlesf  in  the  De  Exeter  territory. 
Under  A.D.  1316  the  Four  Masters 

"Felim  (i.e.  O'Connor,  thei^  King  of 
Connaught)  again  assumed  the  govern- 
ment of  Connaught.  He  mustered  another 
army,  and  marched  against  Athleathan, 
DOW  Ballylahan,  in  the  barony  of  Gallen, 
and  county  of  Mayo,  formerly  the  seat  of 
the  De  Exeter  Jordans,  lords  of  Ath-

and  slew  Slevin  De  Exeter  Jordan,  lord 

of  the  towp,  and  also  Gogonoch  (or  Milea 
De  Cogani,!  the  noblest  baron  in  his 
time  in  Ireland,  and  many  others  of  the 
English;  and  acquired  niuch  booty. " 

10.  Meyler,  lord  of  Athleathan: 
son  of  Slevin  ;  died  in  1336.  Was 
succeeded  by  his  brother  Stephen  ; 
who  was  slain  in  1355,  as  mentioned 
by  the  Four  Masters.  This  Stephen 
was  succeeded  by  his  son : 

11.  Slevin,  who  with  his  brother 
John  was  in  1380  killed  in  a  battle§ 
at  Athleathan  fought  there  between 
the  two  DeBurgo  rival  factions : 

•'  MacWilliam  Bourke,"  say  the  Four 
Masters,  "gave  MacWilliam  Oughter 
(Ridhard  Oge)  a  great  overthrow  in  the 
town  of  Athleathan,  in  which  MacJordan. 
Dexeter,  lord  of  Athleathan,  and  John 
Dexeter  were  slain." 

Slevin  was  succeeded  by  his  son  : 
12.  Kichard,   who  in   1395   was 

*  Slevin :  From  this  Slevin,  Bahslev'm  (now  Rosleviii)  Castle,  near  Kiltimagh,  in 
the  CO.  Mayo,  derives  its  name.  The  modern  Castle  of  Roslevin  is  now  the  seat  of 
the  present  representatives  of  the  De  Exeter  Jordan  family — See  No.  30,  infra,  on  this 

f  Castles  :  This  Slevin  and  his  son  Stephen  built  as  outpost  fortifications  placed 
at  certain  distances  around  their  territory,  for  its  better  defence,  the  following  Castles, 
the  ruins  of  which  are  yet  to  be  seen  in  the  localities  mentioned  :  1.  Currarie  (or 
Caislean)  Stephen,  near  Ballyvary,  barony  of  Gallen,  and  co.  of  Mayo,  which  was  a 
very  strong  fortress,  and  is  still  in  a  very  good  state  of  preservation.  2.  Bohola,  only 
one  tower  of  which  remains.  3.  Ballinamore,  the  ruins  of  which  are  situate  on  the 
lawTi  in  front  of  Mr.  Ormsby's  residence.  4.  Old  Castle,  near  Swinford,  and  convenient 
to  the  modern  residence  of  Mr.  O'Rorke.  5.  New  Castle,  near  the.  present  residence 
of  Mr.  Owen  O'Mally,  J.P.  6.  Athoiise.  7.  Mathslevin,  near  Roslevin  Castle,  now 
the  residence  of  Mr.  Myles  H.  Jordan,  J.P.  8.  Tumore,  near  Foxford.  9.  Cloon^ee 
Castle,  near  Foxford.  10.  Raight  or  Wraight,  in  the  barony  of  Costello.  11.  Island 
Castle,  in  same  barony,  and  near  Ballyhaunis. 

%  De  Cogan  :  Miles  De  Cogan's  daughter  was,  we  have  seen,  married  to  Patrick 
De  Courcy,  ths  second  baron  of  Kinsale ;  he  was,  therfefore,  related  by  marriage  to  the 
lord  of  Athleathan,  with  whom  De  Cogan  was  on  a  visit  on  that  occasion. 

§  Battle;  Myler,  the  son  and  heir  of  Slevin,  being  too  young  on  his  father's  death 
to  engage  in  active  warfare,  we  find  that  in  1381  (one  year  afterwards)  the  MacDonoghs 
of  Ballymote,  made  a  predatory  incursion  into  Gallen,  demolished  the  Castle  of 
Athleathan,  and  carried  away  the  gates  thereof  to  Ballymote.  Some  fifteen  years  ago 
a  curious  circumstance  occurred  in  relation  to  that  fact :  A  member  of  the  MacJ  ordan 
family  happened  to  observe  in  a  place  he  had  visited  two  beautifully  carved  stones  on 
•which  were  represented  his  family  crest.  Upon  inquiring  how  the  then  owner  of  those 
Btones  came  to  be  in  possession  of  them,  the  reply  was  that  they  were  carried  from 
Ballymote  Castle  to  Glen  Island,  in  the  co.  of  Mayo,  by  a  retired  constable  of  police, 
who  looked  upon  them  as  a  curiosity.  The  two  carved  stones,  it  is  needless  to  say, 
•were  at  once  purchased,  and  are  (in  1888)  again  we  find  in  possession  of  a  De  Exeter, 
namely,  Doctor  Myles  Joseph  Jordan,  M.D.,  Castlebar.

taken  prisoner  by  some  of  his  kins- 
men, and  delivered  into  the  hands 
of  .  MacWi)ham  Bourke.  "  But," 
say  the  Four  Masters,  "Donal  Mac- 
Murtogh  O'Connor  and  the  Irish  of 
North  Connaught  marched  their 
forces  into  the  territory  of  Mac- 
WilKam,  in  consequence  of  the 
taking  of  MacJordan,  whom  they 
set  at  liberty ;  and  peace  was  made 
between  the  English  and  Irish  of 
the  province  on  that  occasion." 
This  Richard  was  succeeded  by  his 
brother  Myler,  who,  in  1416,  with 
his  kinsmen,  made  an  iattack  on  the 
sons  of  John  O'Hara;  but  was  slain 
on  his  return  home  from  their 
territory,  having  taken  from  them 
much  booty.  Myler  had  a  son, 
John,  and  another  named  Richard, 
who  was  known  as  Richard  Mac- 
Jordan  of  the  Wood.*  John  was 
in  1394  treacherously  killed  by  his 
own  kinsmen ;  and  Richard  of  the 
Wood  succeeded  his  father,  as  lord 
of  Athleathan. 

13.  Richard  MacJordan,t  of  the 
Wood:  son  of  Meyler;  was  in  142G 
taken  prisoner  by  Owen  O'Flaherty, 
who  delivered  him  into  the  hands 
of  MacJordan  Dubh,  by  whom  he 
was  plundered.  This  Richard,  lord 
of  Athleathan,  lived  to  a  very  old 

age;  he  made  in  1428  a  hostile 
incursion  into  Tyrawley,  against 
Thomas  Barrett,  whom  he  plun- 
dered ;  he  had  many  sons  (one  of 
whom  is,  under  a.d.  1472  in  the 
Annals  of  the  Four  Masters,  men- 
tioned for  his  valour),  and  a  dau. 
Ceha  or  Sil6  (died  in  1485),  who 
married  Richard  Bourke,  as  above 
mentioned,  and  who,  say  the  Four 
Masters,  was  "  the  most  exalted 
woman  in  Connaught."  From  her 
are  descended  the  present  families 
of  the  Marquis  of  Clanricard  and 
the  Earl  of  Mayo. 

14.  Meyler,  lord  of  Athleathan  : 
succeeded  his  father,  Richard,  in 
1475  ;  died  in  1510  ;  and  was  suc- 
ceeded by  his  son,  Slevin. 

15.  Slevin  De  Exeter,  d.  in  1533, 
and  was  succeeded  by  his  brother, 
James,  who  in  1548,  was  succeeded 
by  his  nephew : 

16.  Slemme,  who,  in  1560,  was 
succeeded  by  his  son : 

17.  Myler,  who,  in  1578,  was 
succeeded  by  his  son: 

18.  Stephen  :  who  was  succeeded 
by  his  brother,  Evagher  MacJordan, 
who  was  succeeded  by  his  son : 

19.  EdmondJ  (d.  1620),  who  was 
succeeded  by  his  son  : 

20.  James,,  lord  of  Athleathan, 

*  Wood :  Meaning  the  woody  plain  oj  plain  of  the  woods  where  is  situated  the 
town  of  Kiltimagh  ('-coillte:"  Irish,  woods;  "  magh,"  a  plain),  in  the  barony  of 
Gallen  and  county  of  Mayo.  In  those  days  there  were  extensive  woods  in  that 
locality,  from  which  circumstance  Kiltimagh  derives  its  name. 

t  MacJordan:  According  to  the  Linea  Atdlqua,  another  "MacJordan"  family 
wa8  descended  from  Meyler,  a  younger  brother  of  Costelo  Oge,  who  (see  page  136x 
ante),  is  No.  2  on  the  "  Costello"  genealogy. 

X  'Edmond :  This  Edmond  Evagher  MacJordan  De  Exeter,  lord  of  Athleathan, 
wag  Qne  of  the  barons  who  attended  on  Sir  William  Petty  during  his  Survey  of 
Connaught ;  signed  the  paper  acknowledging  the  number  of  quarters  of  land  he  was 
possessed  of;  and  produced  "  matters  of  record  and  credit"  (as  above  mentioned)  to 
show  that  he  (Jordan)  and  his  ancestors  were  barons  by  tenure  of  lands,  and  were 
sununoned  as  such  to  Parliament ;  and  Petty  in  his  report  to  his  Government  states,

27.  Henry  De  Exeter  Jordan,  or 
"  Henry  of  the  Ruffles"t  as  he  was 
called :  son  of  Edmund  and  said 
Catherine,  his  wife.  Henry  m.  a 
Miss  Burke  of  Ower,  co.  Gal  way 
(whose  sister  m.  Sir  Walter  Blake, 
Bart.,  of  Menlough  Castle,  county 
Galway))  and  had  two  sons  and 
three  daughters :    ■ 

I.  James,  the  elder  son,  was  a 
Barrister-at-Law;  conformed  to 
the  Church  of  England  to  save 
the  remnant  of  the  family 
Estates  from  confiscation ;  and 
m.  a  Miss  O'Donnell,  sister  or 
aunt  of  Sir  Neal  O'Donnell  of 
Newport-Mayo,  who  wascreated 
a  Baronet  in  1780.  James 
Jordan  and  his  wife  did  not 
live  happy  together;  by  mutual 
consent  they  separated  after 
three  or  four  years'  cohabitation 
without  issue.  This  James 
was,  in  1785,  killed  in  a  duel  J 

*  MncDonneU :  This  lady  was  one  of  three  sisters  who  were  co -heiresses  of  their 
brother  (or  stepbrother^,  Count  O'Donnell,  who  lost  his  life  in  the  Austrian  Service, 
and  who  owned  the  property  now  called  "Moore  Hall,"  in  the  county  of  Mayo,  which 
-was  then  known  by  another  name.  Another  of  the  sisters  m.  Mr.  Martin,  of  Ross, 
CO.  Galway;  and  the  eldest  sister  m.  Mr., Moore,  an  ancestor  of  the  present  Moores  of 
Moore  Hall,  and  is  credited  with  having  by  some  tact  secured  Moore  Hall  for  her 
husband,  and  deprived  her  two  sisters  of  their  supposed  rights. 

t  Ruffles :  This  Henry  was  so  called,  because,  as  was  then  the  fashion,  he  wore 
rvfflea  in  profusion. 

J  Duel :  The  quarrel  which  led  to  that  duel  originated,  it  is  said,  at  an  Assizes 
held  in  Galway,  circa  1785,  between  Jordan  and  his  relative  Martin,  under  the 
following  circunistances  :  Jordan,  who  went  on  the  Connaught  Circuit,  was  at  the 
Assizes  counsel  in  a  case  against  a  member  of  the  Burke  family  of  Ower,  co.  Galway, 
a  near  relative  of  his  own,  for  Jordan's  mother,  as  above  shown,  was  also  a  member  of 
that  family.  In  the  course  of  conversation,  Martin,  v\rho  was  the  friend  of  both 
parties,  observed  that  he  was  sorry  to  find  Jordan  had  not  treated  his  mother  with 
due  filial  respect ;  but  Jordan,  who  was  proud  and  imperious,  construed  the  observa- 
tion into  an  insult,  and  a  challenge  ensued.  Martin,  who  was  a  noted  duellist  in  those 
days,  made  every  efibrt  to  apologise,  and  thus  prevent  a  hostile  meeting  between 
them ;  but  Jordan  would  not  be  satisfied  unless  the  same  people  were  again  gathered 
together,  in  whose  presence  Martin  had  made  use  of  the  alleged  insulting  expression 
complained  of.  This  would  be  almost  impossible  :  so  the  adversaries  met  in  a  field 
(pointed  out  by  the  country  people  of  that  neighbourhood  to  this  day)  near  the  public 
road  at  Green  Hills,  half  way  between  Castlebar  and  Westport,  when  Jordan  received 
in  the  groin  his  opponent's  fire,  and  was  thence  removed  into  the  neighbouring  house  of 
Mr.  Bourke,  of  Green  Hills,  where  he  (Jordan)  lingered  in  great  pain  for  three  or  four 
days  and  died.     To  the  honour  of  Martin  it  should  be  mentioned  that  he  arrived  at

fought  between  him  and  his 
relative  (first  or  second  cousin), 
the  celebrated  Colonel  Richard 
Martin,  of  Ballinahinch  Castle, 
West  Galway.  James,  who 
d.  s.  p.,  had  a  quarrel  with  his 
mother,  on  account,  it  is  alleged, 
of  her  neglect  of  his  sisters' 
education,  during  his  absence 
from  home  on  travel.  When 
dying,  he  willed  the  family 
Estate  to  a  Miss  Vipout,  of 
Dublin :  thus  excluding,  he 
thought,  his  mother  from  re- 
ceiving her  dower;  and  his 
brother,  too,  from  inheriting 
the  property.  But  Miss  Vipout 
would  take  only  £500,  under 
the  Will:  She  gave  Myles 
De  Exeter  Jordan,  the  brother 
of  her  "  lover,"  a  clear  receipt 
for  all  claims  on  the  Estate 
which  James's  Will  assigned

Bourke,*  of  Green  Hills  (with  whom 
he  became  acquainted  while  his 
brother  James  was  lying  wounded 
in  her  father's  house,  after  the  duel 
of  said  James  with  Colonel  Martin), 
and  left  six  sons  and  three  daugh- 
ters : 

I.  Henry  De  Exeter  Jordan,  of 
whom  presently. 

II.  Constantine,t  who,  in   1832, 

the  ground  fixed  upon  by  the  seconds  without  his  pistols,  and  in  consequence  it  was 
discussed  for  some  time  that  the  duel  could  not  take  place,  as  Martin  had  not  his 
weapons  with  him.  Jordan,  however,  refused,  to  leave  the  ground ;  used  various 
threats  against  Martin  unless  the  duel  proceeded;  and  insisted  upon  one  of  his 
(Jordan's)  pistols  being  handed  to  his  opponent,  who  had  reluctantly  to  accept  it ;  and 
as  a  fact  Jordan  was  shot  with  one  of  his  own  pistols  ! 

So  keenly  did  Colonel  Martin  feel  respecting  that  unfortunate  duel,  that  one  day 
in  the  dining-room  of  the  mansion  of  Castlemacgarrett,  county  Mayo  (the  seat  of  the 
present  Lord  Oranmore  and  Browne),  where  the  Colonel  had  been  a  frequent  guest,  he 
was  observed  with  a  carving  knife  in  his  hand,  and  "presented"  as  a  pistol,  uncon- 
sciously soliloquising,  "  I  could  not  have  missed  him,"  meaning  the  said  James  Jordan. 
_  The  extraordinary  part  of  the  story  is,  that  Martin  and  Jordan  had  been  so 
intimate,  they  travelled  together  over  nearly  the  whole  of  Europe,  visited  America, 
and  spent  a  few  years  together  in  Jamaica.  When  Jordan  returned  to  IMayo,  after 
five  or  six  years'  absence,  he  found  his  si!?ters  more  or  less  neglected  by  his  mother  in 
their  education  :  that  neglect  led  to  a  feud  between  him  and  his  mother  ;  it  w^as  to 
that  feud  that  Martin's  kindly-meant  observation  referred,  which  led  to  the  duel. 

*  BourJce :  This  branch  of  the  Bourke  (or  De  Burgo)  family  were  the  former 
■owners  of  Castle  Bourke,  the  ruins  of  which  are  situated  close  to  Lough  Carra,  in 
Mayo  ;  and  they  claimed  to  be  the  direct  descendants  of  the  Earl  of  Mayo,  who  d.  in 
Pall  Mall,  as  above  mentioned,  on  the  12th  January,  1769.  After  some  troublesome 
and  expensive  litigation,  however,  the  Naas  branch  of  the  Bourke  family  succeeded 
in  establishing  their  claims  to  the  then  dormant  Earldom  ;  and  in  their  line  it  still 

t  Conslantine :  In  a  duel  fought  in  ISSS  by  this  gentleman  at  Turlogb,  co.  Mayo, 
he  is  said  to  have  displayed  great  coolness  and  courage  ;  and  to  this  day  the  people 
of  that  district  relate  the  circumstances  attending  that  duel,  as  follows  :  Mr.  Jorilaa 
could  not  close  his  left  eye-lid  without  the  aid  of  bis  hand.  While  in  the  act  of  doing 
so  with  his  left  hand  on  the  occasion  of  the  duel,  he  received  his  adversary's  fire

and  demanded  another  shot.  The  seconds,  on  both  sides,  complied  by  again  reloading 
the  pistols;  but  the  adversary's  second,  watchful  for  the  interests  of  his  friend,  saw 
that  Mr.  Jordan  mast  have  been  wounded,  as  blood  was  making  its  appearance

Crest :  A  derm  wolf  ducally  gorged  ppr.    Mot(o :  Mors  aut  honorabilis  vita. 

A  VERY  curious  pedigree  of  this  family  is  recorded  in  the  Office  of  Arms  * 
Dub  m;  which  agrees  with  MacFirbis  in  tracing  the  descent  of  this 
family  from  a  Kmg  of  Britain.  Other  genealogists  assert  that  Jo7jce  and 
Joy  are  of  Anglo-Norman  descent,  and  were  originally  called  De  Jorse. 
But  all  admit  that  they  were  an  ancient,  honourable,  and  nobly  descended 
race;  of  tall  and  manly  stature ;t  and  were  allied  to  the  Welsh  and 
British  Princes. 

Thomas  de  Jorse,  who  (according  to  the  History  of  Galway,  &c.)  was 
the  fir. t  of  the  name  that  came  to  Ireland,  sailed  from  Wales  in  the 
reign  of  King  Edward  L,  immediately  after  that  Monarch  had,  a.d  1282 
defeated  the  Welsh  prince  Lewyllen,  and  added  Wales  to  England.  He 
arrived  with  his  fleet  at  Thomond,  in  Ireland,  where,  it  is  said,  he 
married  Nora  OBrien,  daughter  of  the  then  Prince  of  that  Principality 
He  afterwards  put  to  sea,  steered  for  West  Connaught,  and  landed  in  the 
barony   of  Tyrawley,   m   the  county  of  Mayo,  where  the  sept  had  a

temporary  stay,  and  founded  the  Abbey  of  Eosserk,*  on  the  banks  of  the 
river  Moy.  Thence  he  re-embarked,  and  reached  lar  ConnacM  (or  the 
north-western  part  of  the  county  Galway),  where  he  estabHshed  a  colony 
and  acquired  extensive  tracts  of  territory  contiguous  to  Killery  Bay, 
adjacent  to  the  county  Mayo;  and  extending  from  Cong  river  to  the  river 
Glenbrickeen,  near  Clifden,  in  the  county  Galway,  in  which  some  of  his 
posterity  now  reside.  While  on  his  voyage  to  lar  Con  naught,  his  wife  was 
delivered  of  a  son,  whom  he  named  MacMara  (or  "  the  son  of  the  sea"), 
who  was  subsequently  called  Edmond,  This  Edmond  (MacMara)  Joyco 
was  first  married  to  the  daughter  of  O'Flaherty,  prince  of  lar  Connaught, 
by  whom  he  acquired  the  territory  conoprising  the  present  Parish  of 
Ballinakill,  and  other  districts ;  from  him  are  descended  the  Joyces  of 
^'Joyces'  Country,"  called  after  their  name  Duthaidh  Seoigheoch,  now 
forming  the  Barony  of  Ross,  the  parish  of  Ballinakill,  etc.,  in  the  west  of 
the  county  Galway. 

The  Joyces  were  a  brave  and  warlike  race,  and  great  commanders  of 
gallowglasses,  particularly  Tioboid  na  Caislein  (Toby  or  Theobald  of  the 
Castles),  who  is  No.  11  on  the  subjoined  list  of  the  chiefs  of  the  Joyce 
family.  This  Theobald  and  the  neighbouring  chiefs  were  frequently  at 
war.  One  of  his  most  remarkable  battles  was  with  Tioboid  na  Luinge  (or 
Toby  of  the  Ships),  who  is  No.  28  on  "  The  Bourkes,  lords  viscount  Mayo" 
pedigree ;  which  was  fought  in  Partry,  on  the  boundary  of  the  Bourkes' 
territory  and  Joyces'  country,  in  which  the  Joyces  were  victorious,  and 
Theobald  Bourke  made  prisoner.  As  the  result  of  that  battle,  Tioboid  no, 
Luinge  gave  the  Joyces  a  part  of  his  territory,  extending  from  the  battle- 
field (the  original  boundary ;  and  to  this  day  known  as  Sraith  na  Luinge, 
indicating  where  Tioboid  na  Luinge  was  captured)  to  Owenbrin.  The 
Joyces  were  frequently  at  war  with  the  O'Elahertys,  who,  during  almost 
the  whole  of  the  sixteenth  century,  strenuously  endeavoured  to  regain  the 
territories  which  Edmond  (MacMara)  Joyce  received  with  the  daughter  of 
O'Flaherty,  as  above  mentioned.  In  those  sanguinary  battles  the  bravest 
and  dearest  kinsmen  fell  on  both  sides. 

In  1587  the  Clan  Joyce,  with  great  valour,  opposed  Bingham,  governor 
of  Connaught,  and  assisted  by  c«!ier  tribes  of  the  province,  defeated  him 
at  Caislean  na  Cailighe  ("  cailleach :"  Irish,  an  old  tvoman  ;  Pleb.  *•'  chelach,"

Franciscan  Monasteries  in  Ireland,  by  the  Rev.  C.  P.  Meehan,  Dublin,  is  here  given  : 

"A  few  miles  south-east  of  Killalla,  Rosserrick,  another  of  our  Monasteries,  sees 
itself  reflected  in  the  waters  of  the  Moy.  It  was  founded,  early  in  the  fifteenth 
century,  by  a  chieftain  of  the  Joyces,  a  potent  family  of  Welsh  extraction,  singularly 
remarkable  for  theirgigantic  stature,  who  settled  in  west  Connaught,  in  the  thirteenth 
century.  E-osserick  occupies  the  site  of  a  primitive  Irish  oratory  ;  and  the  place 
derives  its  name  from  Searca,  a  holy  woman,  who  is  said  to  have  blessed  the  Ros  or 
promontory  that  runs  out  into  the  river.  The  site  indeed  was  happily  chosen,  and 
the  entire  edifice  is  an  exquisite  specimen  of  the  architect's  skill.  The  church  and 
monastery  are  built  of  a  compact  blueish  stone,  and  the  former  is  surmounted  by  a 
graceful  square  bell  tower,  so  peculiar  to  all  our  Irish  Franciscan  houses.  The  view 
from  the  summit  of  that  campanile  is  truly  enchanting ;  and,  as  for  the  external 
requirements  of  such  an  establishment — its  cloisters,  library,  dormitory,  refectory, 
and  schools— the  munificence  of  the  Joyces  left  nothing  to  be  desired."

Oxford,  near  Doonamoona,  in  Mayo ;  of  Woodquay,  in  the  town  of 
Ualway ;  and  of  Merview,  near  the  town.  Other  collateral  branches  of  the 
tamiiy  settled  in  Leinster  and  Munster— a  descendant  of  one  of  whom,  it 
IS  said,  was  the  Irish  Judge,  Chief  Baron  Joy.*  The  Joyces  of  Joyces 
country  held  their  possessions  until  the  middle  of  the  seventeenth  century 
up  to  the  Cromwellian  confiscation ;  but  some  of  the  family  are  still  in 
possession  of  extensive  property. 

The  O'Hallorans,  MacConroys,  and  O'Kynes  (or  O'Heneys),  possessed, 
betore  the  Joyces,  the  territory  known  as  "  Joyces'  Country,"  which  was 
anciently  called  Hy-Orhsen.  Jorse  had  a  brother 
Walter,  and  another,  Roland. 

2.  Edmond,  called  "  Edmond 
MacMara  :"  son  of  Thomas  de  Jorse. 
Had  four  sons  :  I.  Walter,  of  whom 
presently;  II.  Richard;  III.  Ed- 
ward; IV.  Rickard;  Edward  and 
Rickard  settled  in  Leinster.

of  Renvyle,  and  d.  1600. 

This  Theobald  had : 

I.  Edmond,  of  whom  presently.

Eenvyle  Castle,§

Joy  :  Writing  to  the  author,  a  friend  of  this  family  in  Pennsylvania,  United 
States,  America,  says  that  the  late  Chief  Baron  Joy  was  a  native  of  Belfast :  that  all 
the  members  of  his  family  have  held  a  prominent  place  in  that  town  for  many  genera- 
tions ;  that  they  are  descendants  of  a  French  Huguenot  who  settled  in  Ireland,  being 
obliged  to  leave  France  in  consequence  of  religious  intolerance  ;  that  it  was  the  •'  Joy" 
family  who  introduced  the  manufacture  of  paper  in  Belfast  ;  and  that  the  establish- 
ment of  The  Belfast  Neivs  Letter — the  oldest  provincial  Newspaper  except  one  in 
Ireland—is  to  be  traced  to  their  intelligence  and  energy. 

Other  eminent  authorities  say  that  De  Jorse,  Joes,  Jorsey,  Jose,  Josse,  Joy,  Joyes, 
Shoey,  Joyce,  Toe,  Yoes  are  all  different  forms  of  sirname  for  the  one  family,  named  in 
Irish,  Seoaiyh,  whom  MacFirbis  mentions  as  of  "The  Welshmen  of  Ireland."  The 
name  Josse  may  still  be  traced  in  "  Villers  Saint  Josse,"  and  "  Josse-Sur-Mer,"  in  that 
part  of  France  anciently  called  Armoric  Gaul. 

t  Ulick  :  This  name  implies  a  marriage  alliance  with  the  "  Bourke"  family. — See' 
the  origin  of  the  name  Ulick,  in  note,  *  William,  p.  58,  ante. 

X  Tioboid  na  Caislei?i :  This  Theobald  was  so  called  because  of  the  castles  and 
BtroDgholds  he  had  built,  viz.  :  Doon  Castle,  near  Clifden  ;  and  Castle  Kirk,  on  an 
island  of  Lough  Corrib,  commanding  the  entrance  to  his  territory  in  that  direction. 
He  also  built. a  stronghold  near  Clonbur,  on  the  eastern  boundary  of  his  territory,  and, 
it  is  believed,  the  Abbey  of  Ross  Hill,  adjacent  thereto.     He  ruled  from  1570  to  1600. 

Renvyle  (or  Rinvile)  Castle,  which  commands  the  entrance  to  Killery  Bay,  and 
which  originally  belonged  to  the  O'Hallorans  of  West  Connaught,  afterwards  became 
the  property  of  the  Joyces  ;  and  was  once  unsuccessfully  attacked  by  the  famous  Grace 
O'Malley,  the  mother  of  Toby  Bourke  (or  Tioboid  na  Luinge),  above  mentioned  who 
(see  p.  62,  ante)  is  No.  28  on  "  The  Bourkes,  Lords  Viscount  Mayo"  genealogy. 

§  Castle:  See  O'Flaherty's  lar  Connacht  (or  "West  Connaught"),  p.  119,  Note  a. 
According  to  the  same  authority  (p.  309,  Note  e),  the  Joyces  assumed  the  name 
MacThomas,  after  Thomas  who  is  No.  1  on  this  Genealogy  ;  and,  ibid.,  p.  45,  Mac- 
Thomas  Joyce  inhabited  Caotlekirk,  in  15SC.

*  Edward :  Blake,  in  his  Letters  from  the  Irish  Highlands  (1823),  says  of  this 
Edward,  or  "  Big  Ned,"  as  he  was  called  :  .  .  .  "  Big  Ned  Joyce  being  between 
six  and  seven  feet  in  height  and  large  in  proportion  ;  from  the  roof  (of  his  huuse)  hung 
down  stores  of  smoked  geese  and  mutton,  instruments  of  fishing,  and  other  articles 
which  showed  the  remains  of  former  prosperity." 

t  Sons  :  These  four  sons  had  twenty-five  male  children,  of  whom  twenty-one  were 
living  in  1877  ;  varying  in  stature  from  5  feet  10  inches  to  6  feet  6  inches.  Henry  D. 
Inglis,  in  his  work  on  Ireland,  written  in  1837,  says  : 

"  The  Joyces  are  a  magnificent  race  of  men  ;  the  biggest,  and  stoutest,  and  tallest 
I  have  seen  in  Ireland  .  .  .  but  Jack  Joyce  (No.  23  on  this  Genealogy)  is  huge 
even  among  them.  He  is  as  near  akin  to  a  giant  as  a  man  can  well  be,  Without  being 
every  bit  a  giant.  In  breadth,  height,  muscle,  and  general  aspect,  he  is  like  a  man — 
if  not  of  another  race — the  descendant  of  another  race.  He  looks  upon  himself  as  a 
sort  of  King  of  that  country — Joyces'  Country — as  indeed  he  is." 

X  Patrick :  We  are  pleased  to  find  by  the  report  of  the  Land  Court,  presided  over 
by  Judge  Ormsby,  that,  in  November,  1882,  this  Patrick  Joyce,  of  Mounterowen 
House,  was  declared  the  purchaser  in  fee  of  the  townland  of  Mounterowen  West,  upon 
which  he  (in  1888)  resides;  and  also  the  adjoining  village  of  Culloghbeg.  And  we 
congratulate  Mr.  Patrick  Joyce  upon  his  thus  regaining  even  a  part  of  the  once  vast 
patrimony  of  his  ancestors,  of  which  they  were  deprived  by  the  Cromwellian  Con- 
fiscations in  Ireland.
